Pinder, Thomas a Wesleyan preacher of some note, was born at West Stockwith, near Gainsborough, Eng., Sept. 22, 1774. He was converted through Methodist agency in 1795 at Sheffield. He felt called of God to the work of the holy ministry, and in 1799 was appointed to the Thetford Circuit. Thence for thirty-five years he labored on in a most exemplary discharge of his pastoral and ministerial functions. In all the circuits in which he traveled he was highly and deservedly esteemed, both in his public and private capacity. As a preacher, though not great, he was striking, faithful, and impressive. As a pastor, he was most tender and sympathizing. He died Aug. 27, 1835. — Wesl. Meth. Mag. 1836, p. 719; 1838, art. 1.
