Bellerby, Edward Johnson, MUS.DOC, was born at Pickering, Yorkshire, March 28,1858, but resided during most of his early years at Selby. Trained at York Minster by Dr. Monk, he became organist at Margate Parish Church in 1881; and of Holy Trinity, Margate, in 1884. Although mainly devoted to music, Dr. Bellerby is deeply interested in Foreign Missions, and especially in connection with the C.M.S. His hymn,
Shine on me, 0 Lord Jesus [Missions], was written circ. 1894, and first published in the C. M. S. Gleaner, Feb., 1896, p. 31, with a Scripture reference to each line; and later in the Church Mission Hymn Book 1899; and Hymns of Consecration and Faith, 1902. Dr. Bellerby has written several additional hymns yet to be published.
