8/30 Tomb of John Wedgwood
in Churchyard of Brown
Knowl Methodist Church


Tomb circa 1869 of John Wedgwood (1788-1869) and his wife Hannah
(1814-1891). A square, battered pier with tall, moulded plinth of
white'stone standing on a base of rusticated sandstone with cast iron
cresting. The pier is inscribed In affectionate remembrance of the
late Venerable John Wedgwood who departed this life March 20th 1869
aged 81 years. Also of Hannah, wife of the above who died at Crewe
November 15th 1891 aged 77 years.
John Wedgwood was related (not in direct line) to Josiah Wedgwood. He
was a principal supporter of Bourne and Clowes, founders (in South
Cheshire) of the Primitive Methodist sect. Wedgwood was a powerful
and well-loved preacher who did much to establish primitive methodism
in its native region from its inception in 1819. He was buried at
Brown Knowl (the home of a strong primitive methodist community) at
his own wish.
