Cradock Glascott (c.1743-1831)

Cradock Glascott was the son of Thomas Glascott of Cardiff. He was educated at Jesus College, Oxford and was ordained into the Anglican Church although the exact date is unknown.

There is little information about him until he started to preach for the Countess of Huntingdon in 1766.

Glascott was one of the ministers at the Countess's Spa Fields Chapel in London and was prosecuted in the Church courts for assisting William Sellon.

He severed his connection with the Countess when he was offered the benefice of Hatherleigh but maintained a friendship with her for the rest of her life and continued to occasionally preach in her chapels.
