BURDER, SAMUEL (1773–1837), divine, was related to George Burder [q. v.], and brought up as a dissenter. After being minister of an independent congregation at St. Albans he conformed to the church of England, and was ordained by Bishop Barrington about 1809. He was for some time at Clare Hall, Cambridge, but his name does not appear in the list of graduates. He was preacher at St. Margaret's, Lothbury, at St. Dunstan's, Fleet Street, and afterwards at Christ Church, Newgate Street. He was appointed (before 1816) chaplain to the Duke of Kent, and in 1827 to the Earl of Bridgewater. He died 21 Nov. 1837. He was the author of 1. ‘The Moral Law … an Antidote to Antinomianism,’ 1795. 2. ‘A Christian Directory,’ 1800. 3. ‘Owen's Display of Arminianism.’ 4. ‘Oriental Customs in illustration of the Scriptures,’ 1802 and 1807; several editions and a German translation by Rosenmüller, 1819. 5. ‘The Scripture Expositor,’ 1809. 6. ‘Oriental Literature applied to the Illustration of the Sacred Scriptures,’ 1812. 7. ‘Memoirs of eminently Pious British Women,’ 1815. 8. ‘Oriental Customs,’ 1831. Burder's works on oriental customs were popular compilations.
