Corlett, John an English Methodist minister, was born on the Isle of Man. He was converted in early life, offered himself to the conference in 1824, and, after a brief appointment to Kendal, entered upon mission work in Newfoundland, where he labored with indefatigable zeal and much success until 1830. He was then sent as chairman to the Bahama District, and there, as also in Barbadoes, Demerara, and Antigua, continued his toil with unabated devotedness until 1860, when he was welcomed back to Jamaica. He still labored abundantly in powerful preaching, in prayer, in erection of chapels, and the introduction of the Gospel into neglected localities, becoming a supernumerary after fifty years' missionary toil. He died August 6, 1877. See Minutes of the British Conference, 1878, page 53.
