Hordle, William, was born in Dorsetshire in the year 1778, and in 1800 became Pastor of the Congregational Church in Harwich, Essex, where, after a useful ministry of half a century, he died Dec, 1849. During part of this time he kept a school, and at his death left considerable property to religious purposes. In the year 1814 Mr. Hordle wrote the hymn, No. 840, in the Baptist Psalms & Hymns (1858), "This sacred day, Great God, we close" (Sunday Evening); but it is not known that he was the author of any other published composition.
