I’ve just spotted the part that commends the initiative of Mr. C.J. Iles, J.P.. “Our friend also took the initiative in declaring that the time had fully come when means of modern travel should be provided for the circuit ministers. A motorcycle is now provided for each minister, and Mr. Iles and his many friends will have the undying thanks of the circuit ministers.”
I wonder whether they really were grateful? Wonderful!
Geoff, Many thanks for this update on one strand of the descendants of Elizabeth Sadler. It is really good to hear about the ongoing family connections. I have cross-referenced you page to that of Elizabeth Sadler, and reverse linked the page of Elizabeth back to your update.
Thanks for your comment. The Primitive Methodist Magazine was a monthly publication. In each month in the early 1900’s the magazine published a profile of one of the ministers, usually including a picture of the minister and his wife. It was clearly ‘just his turn, in 1922. I will try to add transcriptions of the full 1922 article and the obituary published in the 1934 Minutes of Conference in the next couple of weeks.
