Cowmeadow, John an English Methodist preacher, was received by the British Conference in 1783. In much weakness of body he labored faithfully until his death, in 1786. Wesley, in his Journal, speaks of him as a martyr to long and loud preaching; but says, "He had the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, and was of exemplary behavior." See Atmore, Meth. Memorial, s.v.
