In May 1821 Mr Revell was sent to Halifax to work with Thomas Holliday. On 27 May, whilst preaching at Butter Market, Halifax, in the open air, they were arrested. After a short time in jail some friends stood bail. They were later acquitted at the Bradford Sessions.
I have not been able to identify R. Revell in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
