Clarkson, John (b abt1836)


John was born abt1836 at Hackworth, nr Bedale, Yorkshire, to parents John, who worked the land, and Elizabeth.

Before entering the ministry John was a printer’s apprentice (1851). The 1871 census finds him with his mother and brother at Aiskew, nr Bedale. He is described as a Primitive Methodist Superintendent Minister – without charge.

I have not been able to identify any later record.
