Early Years

John was born on 27 April 1822 at Penwardham, Lancashire. His father was William Brining, a PM Minister. John was converted in 1840. He soon became an exhorter and then spent two years as a local preacher.

Ministry

His obituary records that as a preacher he was methodical, lucid, eloquent, evangelical, scriptural; his silvery voice and appropriate gesture adding a charm to the excellent and well prepared matter from which time to time he gave forth.

As a pastor he was in his several stations generally esteemed and beloved by this flock, by very many of whom his removal will be painfully felt.

Family

John married Catherine Gillott (1820-1891) in the summer of 1848 at Sheffield, Yorkshire. Census returns identify seven children.
