Benjamin Seward (b.1705)

Benjamin Seward was brother to the Methodist martyr William Seward and an older contemporary of Charles Wesley at Westminster School.

Seward was a graduate of Cambridge University and was converted under his brother's influence in 1739.

He apparently planned to enter the Anglican ministry but did not do so for reasons that remain unknown. Two of his brothers Francis and Thomas were Anglican ministers.
