Philip Doddridge never enjoyed the best of health. In life he had the appearance of a “bag of bones” and was always running from this place to that in the Lord’s work. When it became clear that his life was close to its end friends and supporters contributed to pay for the cost of him travelling to Lisbon, Portugal for a “change of air”. Sadly he was met by no better weather than he left in England and that journey was to be his last. He died there of tuberculosis on 26 October 1751. He was buried in a cemetery attached to the British Factory in Lisbon.
