Ernest BAKER (b. 1869), second son and third child of Edwin Isaac and Mary BAKER. In the late 1880s he became minister of a Baptist church in Cape Town, South Africa. From "Ours is the Frontier" by Kathleen R. Cross (University of South Africa, 1986): " In 1892 the Baptist Assembly decided that the time had come to launch a denominational magazine... The editorship was therefore offered to and accepted by the Rev. Ernest Baker of the Cape Town Church, who had been journalist before becoming a minister. The "South African Baptist", which first appeared in August 1894, is the oldest English language denominational periodical still in existence, and it owes much to its first editor."
