Boulton, Thomas an English Methodist minister, was born in 1808. He was converted in early manhood, joined the Primitive Methodist Church, and in 1838 entered their ministry. After he had travelled in nineteen circuits, enduring severe toil and much privation, his health failed, and in 1872 he took a supernumerary position, still working as he had strength. He located near Whitchurch, Dorset, exhibiting his sincere piety in his very cheering visits to the sick, poor, and aged, till paralysis laid him aside. He peacefully died, July 30, 1881.
