William Allwood

Travelling Preacher

By Sue Salter

My 5 x great grandfather William Allwood, born 1728 in Staveley, Derbyshire, was converted to Methodism when John Wesley was in the area. He became a travelling preacher with Wesley and is mentioned several times in his Journal. William, or Billy as he was called by Wesley, eventually settled in Cheshire and died in 1811 at Burland Farm.
