Christophers, Samuel W.
an English Wesleyan minister, was born at Falmouth in 1810. The public baptism of a young Jewess, and her confession of faith in Christ, led him to earnestly seek for pardon.

He spent the last years of his life at Formby, near Liverpool, and died August 14, 1889. He is widely known as the author of Hymn Writers and their Hymns: The Poets of Methodism: — The Homes of Old English Writers :-
The Methodist Hymn-book and its Writers: and smaller works. See Minutes of the British Conference, 1890, page 13.
