Samuel P. Tregelles

Samuel Prideaux Tregelles (1813 - 1875) was an English theologian. He was born at Wodehouse Place near Falmouth, England. His parents were Quakers, and he himself for many years was in communion with the (Darbyites) Plymouth Brethren, but rejected John Nelson’s Darby’s teaching of a ‘secret’ pretribulational rapture. Tregelles was a cousin of Benjamin W. Newton, a well respected Bible teacher, who also left the Darby movement doctrinal issues. Tregelles worked with George Wigram on the Englishman's Greek and Hebrew Concordances and became a foremost scholar in Biblical textual studies.
