Blagborne, William an English Wesleyan minister, was born in 1754. He joined the Methodists at an early age, and was received by Wesley into the ministry in 1785, and travelled therein for twenty-five years. Owing to singular opinions on the uncertainty of things, arising from the French Revolution, he retired from the ministry, but still preached. He died suddenly at Chiselhurst, Kent, May 2, 1816.
