Thomas Gee (1771-1836)
Thomas Gee was born at Hollins near Mellor in Cheshire.
He was orphaned at an early age and was converted under the influence of the Anglican clergyman Reverend Oleranshaw.
After studying the writings of John Wesley and John Fletcher, he joined the Methodist society and became a class leader and local preacher.
Gee entered the itinerancy in 1798 and exercised an active circuit ministry for thirty-one years until he was forced into retirement by the affects of a paralytic stroke.
He retired to Chester where he died on 24 May 1836.
