George Conon (1698-1775)

George Conon was probably born in Scotland and was raised as a Presbyterian. After graduating from Aberdeen University, Conon was appointed headmaster of Truro Grammar School in Cornwall in 1728. His strong ethics and Christian faith impressed everyone who met him and he was instrumental in the evangelical conversion of Revd. Samuel Walker. The noted Anglican evangelical George Burnett was at one time his assistant and Thomas Haweis was a pupil at the school.
