Bryan, Joseph Pirth
Bryan, Joseph Pirth an English Congregational minister, was born in Liverpool in 1812. As a child he was a Sunday-school scholar; as a young man, first a school- teacher, and then a pastor for several years at Ravenstonedale, Westmoreland, where his labors were abundant. In 1846 he undertook "A Ragged and Industrial School," which greatly flourished under his care. During his twenty-five years in the industrial school he did not relinquish the pulpit, but was a favorite supply. He died December 11, 1871. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1873, page 319.
