Wall, George an English Methodist preacher, and one of the original promoters of the New Connection, was born in the Peak of Derbyshire in 1774, and was converted among the Methodists at the age of twenty. Removing to the village of Arnold, Nottingham, he joined the New Connection, and was accepted in this ministry in 1799, and his seventeen appointments embraced the leading circuits in the Connection, in which his integrity, piety, and devotion secured for him acceptance and great usefulness. He was three times president of conference in 1809, 1815, and 1832. In 1838 declining health obliged him to become a supernumerary, but his forty years labors comforted him in his retirement. He enjoyed unclouded peace in his last hours, and died at Lightcliffe, near Halifax, March 4, 1852. See Minutes of the New Connection Conference.
