Hanby, Thomas

Hanby, Thomas an English Wesleyan preacher, was born at Carlisle Dec. 16, 1733; was left an orphan at seven, and bound to a trade at twelve. He had little education, but had serious thoughts from infancy, and was confirmed at thirteen. Some time after, through Methodist influence, he was converted. — In 1754 he began to preach, and, during his first year of work, was often in danger of violent death from mobs. In 1755 he was admitted into the itinerancy. He afterwards preached in most of the cities of the kingdom. He (lied at Nottingham Dec. 29,1796. Mr. Hanby's labors tended greatly to the spread of vital religion among some of the most abandoned and violent districts of England. See Jackson, Lives of Early Methodist Preachers, 1, 274. (G.
