Preacher and theologian. Born Dumfriesshire. Founded the Catholic Apostolic church, commonly called the "Irvingites". Arrived in London to take charge of the Gaelic Chapel in Hatton Place. He was so successful that he had to expand into a new church in Regent Square. In 1831 he was expelled from that church for encouraging forms of worship contrary to those of the Church of Scotland. He took 4/5ths of the congregation with him. A gothic church was built for them in Gordon Square in 1854 but numbers reduced in the early 1900s.
