Bradburn, Samuel

Bradburn, Samuel a distinguished Wesleyan minister, was born at Gibraltar, where his father's regiment was stationed, October 5, 1751, and settled at Chester, England. He became a local preacher in 1773, and an itinerant in 1774. He soon became remarkably popular, and was considered one of the first preachers of the land. Adam Clarke says of him, I have never heard his equal; I can furnish you with no adequate ideas of his powers as an orator; we have not a man among us that will support any thing like a comparison with him." After a long and pre-eminently popular career, he died on the 24th of July, 1816.- Wesleyan Mag. 1816; Wakeley, Heroes of Methodism, p. 269; Life of Samuel Bradburn, by his daughter (Lond. 1816, 12mo).
