Sermons of Alexander Brodie, 1815 - 1828

Scope and Content

17 sermons preached by Alexander Brodie in the period 1815 - 1828, and recorded by Julia Brodie. Each sermon is dated, and it seems that most were delivered more than once, though the place of delivery is not given, apart from the earliest, dated 3 Sept 1815, which was preached at Lamont, Argyll, Scotland.

Administrative / Biographical History

Alexander Brodie, DD, was vicar of Eastbourne from 1809 until his death in 1828. It is believed that he was the son of Alexander Brodie of London, who matriculated at Trinity College, Oxford, aged twenty, graduating BA in 1797, MA in 1801, BD and DD in 1811.

No details have been established about the life of Julia Brodie. It is known that she recorded the sermons preached by Alexander Brodie throughout the period 1815 - 1828, and is presumed that she may have been his wife or sister.


Single item. The 17 sermons have been bound in one volume in no obvious order.
