Anderson, Henry an English Methodist preacher, father of the Rev. John Anderson, was born at East Sutton, Yorkshire, in 1766. He early participated in the frivolity and dissipation characteristic of the neighborhood, and it was not until his twentieth year that he was converted under Methodist preaching. He entered the Wesleyan ministry in 1791, and labored incessantly until 1832, when the Conference granted him a supernumerary relation. He resided for some years in Gainsborough. In 1840 he removed to Hull, where he died, Jan. 31, 1843. Mr. Anderson was a studious, pious, and affectionate man. See Wesleyan Meth. Mag. 1847, p. 521; Minutes of British Conference, 1843.
