John Hodson (1765-1832)
John Hodson was born at Seighford near Stafford. He was converted at the age of 26, joined the Methodist society and after spending some years as a class leader and local preacher, entered the itinerancy in 1797. His active circuit ministry was spent in Wales, the Midlands and the South of England. He caught a severe cold while stationed in the Shaftesbury circuit and this led to his death on 8 October 1832.
