John Davies (1784-1845)
John Davies was born in Flintshire, North Wales. He was one of the first converts to Wesleyan Methodism in his area and joined the society at the age of sixteen. Soon after his conversion, he began to preach locally and entered the itinerancy in 1806. His active circuit ministry was exercised mainly in England and lasted until his death which occurred suddenly after preaching at Merthyr Tydvil while he was on his way to his evening appointment.
