Bragg (Nee Wilson), Margaret

Bragg (Nee Wilson), Margaret an English minister of the Society of Friends, daughter of Isaac Wilson, was born at Kendal in 1775, and early in life became a subject of God's renewing grace. In 1790 she was married to Hadwen Bragg of Newcastle- upon-Tyne, and at the age of thirty-four began her ministerial life. At different times, being freed from her domestic cares, she visited most of the meetings of Friends in Great Britain, and in 1825 made a religious tour in Ireland. She is said to have been endowed with great natural abilities, and was thus prepared for the management of affairs as few women are. Her ministry at the meetings of Friends was on many occasions close and searching, calculated to arouse the supine and indifferent, and was blessed to those who heard. She died June 2, 1840. See Testimonies at Yearly Meeting, 1841, page 13-18. (J.C.S.)
