John Grant (d.1811)

John Grant was converted under Methodist influence and started to preach before the age of twenty-one.

He joined the itinerancy in 1790 and laboured in English circuits until poor health forced his superannuation in 1807. He spent his retirement in Lynn and Sheffield where he died in October 1811.

His particular gifts were stated by his conference obituary to be strength of intellect and reasoning powers. His memory and command of scriptures were so great that he was termed 'The Walking Bible.'
