Brickwood, Richard a preacher of the United Methodist Free Church, was born in Camelford, Cornwall, in June 1822. He was religiously brought up, was converted at sixteen, and became a local preacher, and a home missionary in 1845, travelling in Davenport, Worcester, and ten other circuits, in which large congregations attended his instructive and earnest ministry. In November, 1860, sickness prostrated him, but he rallied a little. His sudden death, March 9, 1861, terminated a useful aid happy life. See Minutes of Fifth Annual Assembly.
