Betts, R Wye
Betts, R. Wye an English Congregational minister, was born at Portsea, 1823. He was converted and joined the Church early in life, and was educated at Highbury and New Colleges. In 1853 he accepted a call of the Church at Hanover Chapel, Peckham, where he labored till his death, Dec. 1, 868. The duties of his pastorate were onerous, yet Mr. Betts gave much time and thought to other work. The Collyer Memorial Schools rose under his energetic influence. He was secretary of the Surrey Congregational Union, and of the Local Fraternal Association. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1870, p. 276.
