Tallents, Francis 1619-1708

Francis Tallents (1619–1708) was a non-conforming English Presbyterian clergyman.

Born in Derbyshire, Tallents studied at Peterhouse, Cambridge and Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he became a Fellow and subsequently President. He was appointed minister of St. Mary's, Shrewsbury in 1652, but ejected for Nonconformity in 1662. His 1705 History of Schism involved him in controversy with the nonjuring clergyman Samuel Grascome (1641–1708).
