JARVIS, SAMUEL (fl. 1770), organist and composer, blind from his birth, had lessons on the organ from Dr. Worgan, and became organist to the London Foundling Hospital and to St. Sepulchre's, city of London.

Among his compositions are ‘Six Songs and a Cantata for the Harpsichord, Violin, and German Flute;’ air, ‘On Felicia,’ with bass; and ‘Twelve Songs, to which is added an Epitaph for Three Voices,’ edited after the composer's death by his pupil Groombridge.
