Cayley, Lady the widow of Sir Thomas Cayley, Bart., was one of the most eminent and devoted Christians known in the annals of Methodism. She was converted at the age of fifty-two, at Brompton, where she resided, in the Scarboro circuit, and joined the Methodist society, of which she continued a most faithful member until her death, July 30, 1828, aged eighty. She was the means of reintroducing Methodist preaching in Brompton; through her exertions a chapel was built, and every poor and neglected family in the neighborhood shared her visits and personal labors. Humility, devotion, and an unceasing desire to do good characterized all her spiritual life. She was strongly attached to the doctrine and discipline of the Methodists. See Wesl. Meth. Mag. 1830, p. 1; Smith, Hist. of Wesl. Methodism, 2, 384- 386.
