Henry Drummond

Drummond, Henry, 1786–1860, English banker, known particularly as one of the founders of the Catholic Apostolic Church. Beginning in 1826, he gathered annually for five years, at his home in Surrey, a group of laity and clergy to examine the prophecies in the Scriptures. Out of these meetings grew the organization of the Catholic Apostolic Church under Edward Irving. Drummond became an apostle of the church in 1832. From 1847 until his death, he was a member of Parliament.
