William Aver (1768-1835)
William Aver was converted in early life and entered the itinerancy in 1790. His active circuit ministry lasted until 1835 and was spent principally in the South-west of England. Shortly before the 1834 Conference he retired to Penzance where he died in January 1836 after an illness lasting several months. He is described in his Conference obituary as 'naturally endowed with considerable shrewdness and power of discrimination, he was remarkable also for the gentleness of his manners'.
