Edward William Grinfield (1785–1864) was an English biblical scholar.

Life[edit]

He was the son of Thomas Grinfield and Anna Joanna, daughter of Joseph Foster Barham of Bedford, and brother of Thomas Grinfield. He was a schoolfellow of Thomas de Quincey at Wingfield, Wiltshire.[1] He entered Lincoln College, Oxford, proceeded B.A. 1806, M.A. 1808, and was ordained in the same year by the Bishop of Lincoln.[2]

After studying law at Lincoln's Inn and the Inner Temple, Grinfield became minister of Laura Chapel, Bath. It had been founded by Francis Randolph, its proprietor, in 1756.[3] Later he moved to London, where he occasionally preached at Kensington.[2][4]

In 1859 Grinfield founded and endowed a lectureship at Oxford on the Septuagint. He died at Brighton on 9 July 1864, and was buried in Hove churchyard.[2]
