Charles Spurgeon
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Kelvedon, Essex
Born on 19th of June 1834
Died on 31st of January 1892

Baptist minister Charles Spurgeon gained the nickname Prince of Preachers for his oratory at New Park Street Chapel in Southwark and then for decades at the purpose-build Metropolitan Tabernacle in the same district. He wrote many volumes of sermons and of rather homespun wisdom, was a fervent speaker and writer against slavery (to his personal cost – Southern Baptists in the USA ceased buying his writings because of this), and a practical help to poor children, founding Stockwell’s Orphanage and the charity now called Spurgeon’s.
