Speed, J

Minister of Primitive Methodism around 1836

J Speed. Minister of Primitive Methodism baptised family members in 1836, yet I cannot find any mention of him on your pages. He was officiating at Saul Street Chapel in Preston, Lancashire. and the family of Wilsons travelled from Lancaster to have their child baptised by him.  Does anyone have information on this minister or Saul St., Chapel

  • W Leary, Directory of Primitive Methodist Ministers and their Circuits, 1990, gives the following information about J Speed. 


    • 1835 Preston 
    • 1837 Hull 
    • 1842 Wakefield 
    • 1843 disappears

    The PM Conference Minutes of 1838 reveal the the  costs for J Speed in moving from Preston to Hull were 9s 4d.  In 1842 J Speed is listed as the senior minister at Wakefield but to removal expenses were identified in the 1843 Minutes.
