Bevan, John (1)

Bevan, John (1), a minister of the Society of Friends, was born in Wales in 1646. After his marriage, he became a member of the Church of England. Having read a book by George Fox the younger, he united with the Friends. In 1683 he and his wife removed to Pennsylvania, where they remained many years and brought up a family. They returned to England in 1704. While in America John Bevan "received a gift of the ministry," and itinerated in parts of the new country; and when he returned to his native land he continued to preach in different parts of Wales, closing his life not long after 1721. See Piety Promoted, 4, 353-359. (J. C. S)
