Ambrose Serle (1742-1812) a Calvinistic writer. "[ 1764, while living in or near London, Serle became a friend of William Romaine. Like Romaine he was an evangelical within the Church of England and other friends included John Thornton, John Newton, Augustus Toplady, and Legh Richmond. A series of letters from Romaine shows the deep affection and sympathy in religious matters which subsisted between him and Serle. When William Legge, second earl of Dartmouth, became secretary of state for the colonies in 1772, Serle was appointed one of his under-secretaries, and in January 1776 he was made clerk of reports. He went to America in 1774, accompanied the British army from 1776 to 1778, and during part of that time had control of the press in New York. Serle argued against the American War of Independence on religious grounds in his Americans Against Liberty (1775); his correspondence is rich in information on American affairs. Romaine circulated Serle's Horae solitariae (1776) and Christian Remembrancer (1787)."--H. L. Bennett, `Serle, Ambrose (1742-1812)', rev. Emma Major, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxfor.
