John Taylor (1694-1761) Unitarian theologian and Hebrew scholar. He studied at Whitehaven, a non-conformist academy for the Presbyterian & Congregational ministries. It was here that he began the study of Hebrew. He was ordained in 1716 by dissenting minister in Derbyshire. In 1733 he became the colleague of the Presbyterian minister in Norwich, and in 1757 was appointed to the divinity chair at Warrington Academy. His reading of Samuel Clarke's Scripture Doctrine of the Trinity, past mid-life, caused a radical change in his theological views. He wrote a number of theological works defending his new views including Scripture Doctrine of Original Sin which elicited the famous reply of Jonathan Edwards Sr. "Especially noteworthy is the Hebrew Concordance (2 vols. folio, London, 1754-57), adapted to the English Bible and disposed after the manner of Buxtorf, which held first rank among works of its kind for almost a century, and is an enduring monument to the author's accuracy and industry."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. XI:284-85.

The Concordance is organized alphabetically by the Hebrew words, with English explanations of the various meanings. It also includes in the last half of vol. 2 and index to English words keyed to the Hebrew words by number. Also included is Index Vocum Hebraicarum Defectivarum et Anomalarum, followed by A Supplement to the Explication Of some of the Roots in the Concordance, which is followed by Easy Rules For Reading Hebrew.
