Bumstead, Daniel an English Wesleyan preacher, was born in Colchester, Essex, in 1742. He was called out by Wesley in 1762, and travelled the Sussex Round, Birstall, Leeds, Sheffield, and London circuits. In 1775 he, with Nicholas Manners, desisted from the work, his health being broken down by excessive toil. Thereafter he kept a wine-store in Bishopsgate Street, and was a useful member of City-road Chapel. He died in 1797. He was a man of piety, zealous in his ministry, and successful. See Atmore,' Meth. Memorial, s.v.; Stevenson, City Road Chapel, p. 426.
