Mote spent his early career in the cabinetry business. One strong influence in his life was John Hyatt, who preached at Tottenham Court Road Chapel, one the chapels run by Lady Huntingdon. Mote eventually became a Baptist pastor and served 26 years at Horsham, Sussex. He was so well loved that his congregation offered him title to the church building, but he said:
I do not want the chapel, I only want the pulpit; and when I cease to preach Christ, then turn me out of that.
Mote’s works include:
Hymns of Praise, 1836
