Vaughan, Edward


Petty (p200) records that Edward worked with John Ride in missioning Welshpool, Newtown and other neighbouring places in Montgomeryshire and North Wales from the newly formed Shrewsbury Circuit in 1824.

Subsequently (p219), Petty describes Edward as follows. “Mr Vaughan was a man of slender abilities, but of ardent zeal, and full of compassion for perishing souls. he entered with all his heart into missionary work in this district, and was honoured of God in the conversion of many sinners. he laboured earnestly and with encouraging success for a few years afterwards, and then died in triumph, and went to his reward in heaven.”


I have not been able to identify Edward in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
