Postlethwaite, Thomas

Born in 1710 in Lancaster, he was educated at Cambridge, where he became Master of Trinity College in 1789. Although counted as one of the ablest mathematicians in the university, his only publication was a sermon on the 7th Chapter of Isaiah, verses 14, 15 and 16, which was preached in two parts at St Mary’s Church in December 1780
