social reformer

William Frend (social reformer)

William Frend (1757-1841) was a clergyman, social reformer and writer.

Frend left the Church of England, in which he had been ordained, to become a Unitarian. As a result of his activities, particularly his pamphlet Peace and Union, he was prosecuted in the vice-chancellor’s court at Cambridge, where one of his supporters was Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and was forced to leave the university.
