Excerpt from The Poems of James Montgomery, Esq.: With a Memoir
Tan little port of Irvine in the county of Ayrshire, North Britain, was the place where Janna Mom some first saw the day. He was born on the ith of November, 1771. His father was one of that singular and exemplar... y body of Christians den'ominated Mo ravnas, a sect by no means numerous in Great Brit. Ain, and least of all in Scotland the religious tenets with which the subject of the present memoir was thus impressed in his earliest youth, have tinged lus writings, and been re¿ected in his subsequent conduct through life. He did not long remain in his native town, for at four years of age, his father took him over to Ireland, his parents havnng fixed their resi dence at Gracehill in the county of Antrim. He so journed, however, but a short time in Ireland, for his father most probably with the view of a¿'ording him the benefits either of a better education, or one more consistent with his own religious tenets, sent him to England, and he was placed at a Moravian seminary st Fulnick in Yorkshire, where he remained ten years.
