Transcription of obituary published in the Minutes of Conference by E. Powell

APOLLOS ROBINS BESWETHERICK, was born at Bodwen, in the county of Cornwall; and died at Nunney in the Frome circuit, December the 15th, 1863, aged twenty-three years. He was converted to God eight years ago, and joined the society in the St. Austell circuit. He was taken out to travel by the Frome circuit in December 1860, and laboured here with much acceptability and success till July 1862, when he removed to Bath. He remained on that station one year, and when able to work was made useful in winning souls to Christ. He was returned, on his pledge, on account of illness, to the Frome circuit, by the Swansea circuit, to which he was stationed by the Conference of 1863. His sufferings were very acute, but he bore them with much patience and resignation. The affliction which terminated his life was pulmonary consumption. His end was peace.


Apollos was born in 1840 at Bodwen, Cornwall, to parents Richard, a carpenter and farmer of 16 acres (1851), and Betsey.

Apollos died on 15 December 1863 at Nunney.
