Biography

Little is known of this au­thor, though it seems the name is a pseu­do­nym for Bourne Drap­er. The ear­li­est work in which Vokes’ hymns are thought found is the Se­lect­ion of Mis­sion­a­ry and De­vo­tion­al Hymns, ed­it­ed by Rev. J. Griffin, a Con­gre­ga­tion­alist min­is­ter in Por­tsea, Eng­land, pub­lished in 1797.
