GRAY, ANDREW (d. 1728), divine, of Scottish family, was the first minister of a congregation of protestant dissenters at Tintwistle in the parish of Mottram-in-Longdendale, Cheshire. He subsequently joined the church of England, and was appointed vicar of Mottram, and while there published a volume entitled ‘A Door opening into Everlasting Life,’ 1706, which was reprinted in 1810, with an introductory ‘recommendation’ by the Rev. M. Olerenshaw. Another book, ‘The Mystery of Grace,’ is also ascribed to him. He left Mottram about 1716, and died at Anglezark, near Rivington, Lancashire. His will was proved by his widow, Dorothy Gray, on 19 Feb. 1727–8, so that he died shortly before that date.
