William Ley (fl.1750-1780)

William Ley was an itinerant stationed in Ireland in 1759 and travelled in the Methodist cause until 1763. Ley obtained Anglican orders by 1768 and became curate of Lakenheath in Suffolk. However, he retained a link with the Methodists and aroused the anger of the Vicar as a result. Ley continued to preach for the Methodists and was mentioned in John Wesley's will.
