Clulow, John, an English Wesleyan minister, was born at Rushton, Staffordshire, March 22, 1818. He was appointed to the ministry in 1841, set apart to promote the success of Sunday-schools in 1864, and continued in that work for eleven years, contributing by his unfailing assiduity and marked ability much towards the efficiency of the Wesleyan Sunday and day schools. In 1875 he resumed circuit work, in which he was engaged until his death, which occurred at Plymouth, Dec. 18, 1879. Strict attention to duty, conscientious observance of the details of the work, allegiance to law, his amiability, manliness, and sincerity, made his life influential for good.
