Marshall, Stephen c. 1594-1655

Stephen Marshall (c. 1594 - 1655) was an English Nonconformist churchman. His sermons, especially that on the death of John Pym in 1643, reveal eloquence and fervor. The only "systematic" work he published was A Defence of Infant Baptism, against John Tombes (London, 1646). He had a share in writing Smectymnuus, was appointed chaplain to the Earl of Essex's regiment in 1642, and a member of the Westminster Assembly in 1643. A moderate presbyterian, he contributed to the "Shorter Catechism" in 1647.
