John Stoughton (1807-1897), English dissenting minister and historian. "In 1862 appeared his first important work, 'Church and State Two Hundred Years Ago: a History of Ecclesiastical Affairs in England from 1600 to 1663," London, 8vo. There followed his elaborate 'Ecclesiastical History of England' (Civil Wars, Commonwealth, and Restoration), London, 1867-70, 4 vols. 8vo, which, though unduly diffuse in style, evinced careful study of original sources and freedom from pedantry and prejudice. With its sequels - 'Religion in England under Queen Anne and the Georges,' London, 1878, 2 vols. 8vo - it forms an important contribution to the religious history of England." - DNB (1909).
