Quick Reference

(1783–1873) Methodist minister, editor, and biographer, born near Market Weighton, Lincolnshire, the son of an agricultural labourer. He was largely self-taught. After serving as an itinerant preacher for twenty years, he spent the next twenty years as the influential editor of the principal Wesleyan Methodist magazines, and almost another twenty as theological tutor at Richmond College. His main publications are his editions of John Wesley's Works (1829–31), still the best until the completion of the Abingdon edition; the Life (1841) and Journal (1849) of Charles Wesley; The Lives of Early Methodist Preachers (1837–8; 4th expanded edn, 1871–3); and his Recollections of my Own Life and Times (1873).
