George Heath was educated in Exeter, England, at the Dissenting Academy. For a while he served as pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Honiton, Devonshire, but proved unworthy of his office and was dismissed for cause. Later it would seem he became a Unitarian minister. In 1781, he published Hymns and Poetic Essays Sacred to the Worship of the Deity. He is also the author of A History of Bristol.
