Peter C. Horton (1812-78)
Peter C. Horton was born in Louth, Lincolnshire. He was converted at the age of fifteen and two years later was appointed a class-leader and local preacher. He entered the Wesleyan ministry in 1832 and exercised an active circuit ministry until superannuation in 1869. He served for several years as the Secretary to the Annuitant Society.
Horton spent the last three years of his life in Southport, Lancashire. He attended the Conference of 1878 in apparently good health but collapsed and died just after reading the obituary of Charles Haydon.
