Adoniram Judson

Adoniram Judson (1788–1850) was born at Malden, Massachusetts. His father was a Congregational minister. He was educated at Brown University and Andover Theological Seminary. In 1809 after reading “Star in the East” by Buchannan his heart was turned to missions. He married Ann Hasseltine. They became Baptists and settled in Rangoon, Burma. They devoted themselves to the Burmese language and Bible translation. They waited six years until the first convert. They moved to Ava and Adoniram was imprisoned brutally for almost two years during the war. They moved to Amhurst and Ann died in 1826. He moved to Maulmain and in 1835 married Sarah Boardman, widow of George Boardman. He wrote a Burmese grammar book, a Burmese dictionary and a Pali dictionary. Sarah died in 1845 and in 1846 Judson married Emily Chubbuck in the United States. Then they returned to Burma and worked on the Burmese dictionary.
