The Link: John Nelson Darby and Winston Churchill

I researched whether John Darby ever met Winston Churchill. Apparently not. It seems though that at least one student of Darby ministered to Churchill. John Nelson Darby died about 1880. Winston Churchill was born in 1874, which meant he was too young to have learned from Darby directly. Here's the evidence tying Churchill to Darby's associate- Robert Chapman (1803-1902 Churchill was 28 in 1902). Consider the following two points:

  • John Nelson Darby said of Robert Chapman: "He lives what I teach."1
  • As a young man, Winston Churchill was taken to visit him1
