Wesley (originally Wellesley), a name memorable in English ecclesiastical history, as will be seen from the biographies following. The pedigree on the following page supplies the link connecting all the chief branches of the Wesley family, and extends backward for more than five hundred years. It indicates the branches from which descended the late Arthur, Duke of Wellington, and the two sisters Ann and Jane Porter. It also includes the names of nearly twenty members of the family living at the present time, some of which are now affixed for the first time to add as much completeness as possible to the record. It was prepared by Mr. George J. Stevenson, A.M., of London.
