Coultas, William an English Wesleyan minister, was born at Seamer, Yorkshire, August 22, 1783. He united with the Church in 1801, was received into the ministry in 1810, and sent to Nevis, W.I., where he labored for six years amid much persecution from the planters. He returned to England in 1817; spent the rest of his life in the ministry in his native land; retired to Southport in 1850; and died August 19, 1866. Mr. Coultas had a resolute will, strong passions, controlled by grace; his manner was rugged, his heart honest, and his life-long fidelity to Christ might well throw into the background his eccentricities. He wrote. a Memoir of his daughter, Eliza (12mo). See Minutes of the British Conference, 1867, page 10; Wesl. Meth. Magazine, 1868, page 961.
