Pelly, John Kendrick, published the Ragged School Hymn Book, London, J. Snow, n.d., in which he indicates that at the time of publication he lived at Hammersmith. He also says that at one time he was a scholar at the Tabernacle, City Road, London, and that his teacher was the celebrated John Williams, the South Sea martyr. Several of his hymns with his name appended thereto are in S. D. Major's Book of Praise for Home and School, 1869, Allon's Children's Worship, 1878, and others. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
