Rowland Hill(1744-1833), Evangelical preacher
Sitter in 18 portraits
Rowland Hill was a leading evangelical preacher and a close friend of the portraitist John Russell. Hill was an early supporter of the Sunday School Movement at a time of national emphasis on the religious education of working class children to keep them out of trouble and avoid sin at an early age. In 1783, he opened Surrey Chapel in London's Blackfriars Road to which thirteen Sunday schools were attached, catering for over 3,000 children.
