Samuel Larwood (d.1756)

Samuel Larwood was active in the Irish itinerancy from 1748 and was therefore one of the earliest itinerants to work in Ireland. He attended the first Irish Conference in 1752, at which it was decided that he should return to his native England. He was again appointed to Ireland the following year, but left the Connexion soon after and became an independent minister in Southwark, London.
