Hudson Taylor worked at Dr. Hardey's residence in Hull (top) and lived in the near poverty of Drainside

Taylor was born into a Christian home in Barnsley, Yorkshire, England, the son of "chemist" (pharmacist) and Methodist lay preacher James Taylor and his wife, Amelia (Hudson), but as a young man he moved away from the beliefs of his parents. At 17, upon reading an evangelistic tract pamphlet, he became a Christian, and in December of 1849, he committed himself to going to China as a missionary and was able to read a copy of "China: It's State and Prospects" by Walter Henry Medhurst. About this time, he began studying the languages of Mandarin, Greek, Hebrew, and Latin. In 1851, he moved to a poor neighborhood in Kingston upon Hull to be a medical assistant with Dr. William Hardey, and began preparing himself for a life of faith and service, devoting himself to the poor and having faith that God would provide for his needs. In 1852 he began studying medicine at the Royal London Hospital in the Whitechapel, London, in preparation for working in China. The great interest awakened in England about China through the civil war, which was then erroneously supposed to be a mass movement toward Christianity, together with the glowing but exaggerated reports made by Karl Gützlaff concerning China's accessibility, led to the founding of the Chinese Evangelization Society, to the service of which Hudson Taylor offered himself.

First visit to China

Taylor left England on September 19, 1853 (before completing his medical studies), arriving in Shanghai, China, on March 1, 1854. The nearly disastrous voyage aboard the Dumfries through an Easterly passage near Pulau Buru lasted about five months. In China, he was immediately faced with civil war, throwing his first year there into turmoil. He went on 18 preaching tours starting in 1855, and was often poorly received by the people, even though he brought with him medical supplies and skills. He made a decision to adopt wearing the native Chinese dress and queue (pigtail) with shaven forehead, however, and was then able to gain an audience without creating a disturbance. Previous to this, Taylor realized that wherever he went he was being referred to as a "black devil" because of the overcoat that he wore. (See also the "White Devil" graphic book shown at right). He distributed thousands of Chinese Gospel tracts and portions of Scripture in and around Shanghai. During his stay in Shanghai he also adopted and cared for a Chinese boy named Hanban. After working together with a Scottish evangelist, William C. Burns, of the English Presbyterian Mission in Shantou, Taylor found that all his medical supplies, being stored in Shanghai, had been destroyed by a fire.

In 1857, upon receiving a letter from George Müller, Taylor and his co-worker John Jones decided to resign from the mission board which sent them, the Chinese Evangelization Society, and instead work independently in what came to be called the "Ningpo Mission".

In 1858, he married Maria Jane Dyer, the orphaned daughter of the Rev. Samuel Dyer of the London Missionary Society, who had been a pioneer missionary to the Chinese in Penang, Malaysia[3]. Maria lived and worked at a school for girls in Ningbo which was run by one of the first female missionaries to the Chinese, Mary Ann Aldersey. As a married couple the Taylors took care of an adopted boy named Tianxi while living in Ningbo. They had a baby of their own that died late in 1858. Their first surviving child, Grace Dyer Taylor, was born in 1859. Shortly after she was born, the Taylors took over all of the operations at the hospital in Ningbo that had been run by Dr. William Parker.

He completed his diploma (and a course in midwifery) at the Royal London Hospital with the Royal College of Surgeons in 1862, and with Maria's help, wrote a book called "China's Spiritual Need and Claims" in 1865 which was instrumental in generating sympathy for China and volunteers for the mission field, who began to go out in 1862, the first being James Joseph Meadows.

He traveled extensively around the British Isles speaking at churches and promoting the needs of China. At home in the East End of London he also ministered at Newgate Prison. During this time he became friends with Charles Haddon Spurgeon, who pastored the Metropolitan Tabernacle and became a life-long supporter of Taylor. Interestingly, the place where William Booth (founder of the Salvation Army) first preached that same year (1865) was about a mile from the Taylor's house at Coborn Street in Bromley-by-Bow,- although there is no record of any meeting between them at that time.

He founded the China Inland Mission together with William Thomas Berger shortly thereafter. In less than one year, they had accepted 24 missionaries and raised over £2000 (about £130,000 in 2005). In early 1866 Taylor published the first edition of the "Occasional Paper of the China Inland Mission" which later became "China's Millions".

The following summary by Taylor came to be held as the core values of the CIM:

Object. The China Inland Mission was formed under a deep sense of China s pressing need, and with an earnest desire, constrained by the love of CHRIST and the hope of His coming, to obey His command to preach the Gospel to every creature. Its aim is, by the help of GOD, to bring the Chinese to a saving knowledge of the love of GOD in CHRIST, by means of itinerant and localised work throughout the whole of the interior of China.
Character. The Mission is Evangelical, and embraces members of all the leading denominations of Christians.
Methods. Methods somewhat unusual and peculiar were adopted for working the newly-proposed organisation. It was determined :
1. That duly qualified candidates for missionary labour should be accepted without restriction as to denomination, provided there was soundness in the faith in all fundamental truths.
2. That all who went out as Missionaries should go in dependence upon God for temporal supplies, with the clear understanding that the Mission did not guarantee any income whatever ; and knowing that, as the Mission would not go into debt, it could only minister to those connected with it as the funds sent in from time to time might allow.
Support. The Mission is supported entirely by the free-will offerings of the Lord's people. The needs of the work are laid before God in prayer, no personal solicitations or collections being authorised. No more is expended than is thus received, going into debt being considered inconsistent with the principle of entire dependence upon God.[4]

On May 26, 1866, after over five years of working in England, Taylor and family set sail for China with their new missions team "the Lammermuir Party" aboard the Lammermuir (clipper). A four-month voyage was considered speedy at the time. While in the South China Sea and also the Pacific Ocean the ship was nearly sunk but survived 2 typhoons. They arrived safely in Shanghai on September 30, 1866. May 26 is the 146th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (147th in leap years). ... 1866 (MDCCCLXVI) is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Wednesday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ...

Return to China

The arrival of the largest party of missionaries ever sent to China - as well as their intent to be dressed in native clothing - gave the foreign settlement in Shanghai much to talk about and some criticism began for the young China Inland Mission. The party donned Chinese clothing, notwithstanding - even the women missionaries - which was deemed semi-scandalous at the time. When other missionaries sought to preserve their British ways, Taylor was convinced that the Gospel would only take root in Chinese soil if missionaries were willing to affirm the culture of the people they were seeking to reach. He argued, from the example of the Apostle Paul, “Let us in everything unsinful become like the Chinese, that by all means we may save some.” This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...


They traveled down the Grand Canal of China to make the first settlement in the war torn city of Hangzhou. Another daughter was born to them in China (Maria Hudson Taylor). Taylor began practicing much sought-after medical work and preaching every day under an exhausting schedule. Hundreds came to hear and be treated. Meanwhile, some of the other missionaries went visiting the Chinese from house to house and a young Jane Elizabeth Faulding found a listening ear wherever she went, almost. Conflicts within the team limited their effectiveness, but when Taylor's daughter Grace Dyer Taylor died of meningitis in 1867, the team united and sorted out their discord after witnessing Taylor place the cares of his fellow missionaries above even the concern that he had for his ailing daughter.

Riot in Yangzhou

In 1868 the Taylors took a party of missionaries up to Yangzhou to start a new work. But problems continued in 1868, when their mission premises were attacked, looted and burned. Despite the violence and injuries, no one was killed. Unfortunately, the international outrage at the Chinese for the attack on these British nationals (and the subsequent arrival of the British Navy) caused also the China Inland Mission and Taylor to be criticised in the press for evangelizing with "gunboats". Taylor knew that he would hear this accusation again and resolved to not call upon the authorities in the same way for help. Even so, they returned to Yangzhou later that year, impressing the natives with their perseverance and making many converts.

In 1869 Hudson was influenced by a book called "Christ Is All" by Stephen Higginson Tyng given to him by a fellow missionary. He referred to his new understanding of abiding in Christ for the rest of his life. He was quoted by fellow missionary Charles Henry Judd as saying: 1869 (MDCCCLXIX) is a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Sunday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ... Charles Henry Judd (1842 – October 23, 1919) was a British Protestant missionary to China with the China Inland Mission. ...

”Oh, Mr. Judd, God has made me a new man!”

Loss of Maria

1868 brought another child (Charles Edward Taylor) into the Taylor family, and in 1870, Taylor and his wife made the difficult decision to send their older three surviving children (Bertie, Freddie, and Maria - Samuel died earlier that year) home to England with Miss Emily Blatchley. In July, Noel Taylor was born, though he died of malnutrition and deprivation two weeks later due to Maria's inability to nurse him. Maria herself died several days later, with the official cause of death being cholera. Her death shook Taylor deeply, and in 1871, his own health began deteriorating further, leading to his return to England later that year to recuperate and take care of business items. 1868 (MDCCCLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a leap year starting on Friday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ... 1870 (MDCCCLXX) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Monday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ...

Continued work

Hudson Taylor married Jennie Faulding in 1871.

While there, he was married to Jane Elizabeth Faulding who had been a fellow missionary since 1866. Hudson and Jennie returned to China in late 1872 aboard the MM Tigre. They were in Nanjing when Jennie gave birth to stillborn twins - a boy and a girl in 1873. Two years later, the Taylors were forced to return once again to England because of the death of their children's caretaker, Emily Blatchley. During the winter of 1874 and 1875 Taylor was practically paralyzed from a fall he had taken on a river boat while in China. In this state of crippling physical hindrance, Taylor published an appeal for 18 new workers to join the work. When he did recover his strength, Jennie remained with the children, (including a new son & daughter Ernest Hamilton Taylor & Amy H. Taylor, as well as the orphaned daughter of fellow missionary George Duncan) and in 1876 Hudson Taylor returned to China and the 18 followed him. Meanwhile, in England, the work of General Secretary of the China Inland Mission was done by Benjamin Broomhall, who had married Hudson's sister, Amelia.

From 1876-1877 Taylor traveled throughout inland China, opening missions stations. This was made possible by the September 13, 1876 signing of the Chefoo Convention, a settlement between Britain and China that made it possible for missionary work to occur in inland China. In 1878, Jane Elizabeth Faulding returned to China and began working to promote female missionary activity in China. By 1881 there were 100 missionaries in Taylor's young missions organization. In 1883 Taylor returned to England to recruit more missionaries and raise more money, and returned to China, working now with a total of 225 missionaries and 59 churches. In 1887 their numbers increased by another 102 with The Hundred missionaries, and in 1888, Taylor brought 14 missionaries from the United States. In the USA he travelled and spoke at many places, including the Niagara Bible Conference where he befriended Cyrus Scofield and later Taylor filled the pulpit of Dwight Lyman Moody as a guest in Chicago.

Boxer Crisis of 1900

News of the Boxer Rebellion and the resulting disruption of missionary work in 1900 distressed Taylor, even though it led to further interest in missions in the area and additional growth of his China Inland Mission. Though the CIM suffered more than any other mission in China (58 missionaries, 21 children were killed), Taylor refused to accept payment for loss of property or life, to show the ‘meekness and gentleness of Christ’. Though criticised by some, he was commended by the British Foreign Office, whose minister in Beijing donated £200 to the CIM, expressing his ‘admiration’ and sympathy.

Final years

Due to health issues, Taylor remained in Switzerland, semi-retired. In 1900, D E Hoste was appointed the Acting General Director, and in 1902, Taylor resigned. His wife, Jane Elizabeth Faulding died of cancer in 1904 in Les Chevalleyres, Switzerland, and in 1905, with only several months to live, Taylor returned to China for the eleventh and final time. There he visited Yangzhou and Chinkiang and other cities, before dying suddenly while reading at home in Changsha. He was buried with his first wife Maria in Chinkiang, China, near the Yangtze River.

Legacy

The beginning of "Faith-Missions" (the sending of missionaries with no promises of temporal support - but instead a reliance "through prayer to move Men by God") has had a wide impact among evangelical churches to this day. After his death, China Inland Mission gained the notable distinction of being the largest Protestant mission agency in the world. The biographies of Hudson Taylor inspired generations of Christians to follow his example of service and sacrifice. Notable examples are: missionary to India Amy Carmichael, Olympic Gold Medalist Eric Liddell, twentieth-century missionary and martyr Jim Elliot, founder of Bible Study Fellowship Audrey Wetherell Johnson, as well as international evangelists Billy Graham and Luis Palau.

Descendants of James Hudson Taylor continue his full-time ministry today in Chinese communities in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Rev. James Hudson Taylor III (戴紹曾牧師) and his son Rev. James Hudson Taylor IV (戴繼宗牧師) are now based in Hong Kong providing full-time Chinese ministries. Rev. James Hudson Taylor IV married a Taiwanese woman, Ms. Kuo Yue-Min (柯悅敏), the first Chinese member of the Taylor family.

"Hudson Taylor was, ...one of the greatest missionaries of all time, and ... one of the four or five most influential foreigners who came to China in the nineteenth century for any purpose..."

Kenneth Scott Latourette

"More than any other human being, James Hudson Taylor, ….made the greatest contribution to the cause of world mission in the 19th century."

Ralph D. Winter

"He was ambitious without being proud ... He was biblical without being bigoted... He was catholic without being superficial ... He was charismatic without being selfish."

Arthur F. Glasser

Theology

Taylor was raised in the Methodist tradition but in the course of his life he was a member of the Baptist Westbourne Grove Church pastored by William Garrett Lewis, and he also kept strong ties to the "Open Brethren" such as George Muller. In summary his theology and practice was non-sectarian. For school of ancient Greek medicine, see Methodism (history of medicine). ...
