Turner, Peter an English Congregational minister, was born at Wiverhampton in 1808. His parents were Wesleyans, and it was in connection with that body that he began to labor, at the age of eighteen, as a local preacher. He continued a liberal and zealous member of the Wesleyan community until 1846, when he joined the Independents, and in 18l5 accepted the pastorate of the Independent Church at Evesham, Worcestershire. In 1856 he removed to Southampton, and labored with the Congregational Church until his death, July 26,1861. Mr. Turner was very devoted to his people and pastoral duties, and his pulpit ministrations were, highly prized by all who knew him. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1862, p. 267.
