George Marsland (1798-1849)
George Marsland was born in Birstal, Yorkshire. Converted at the age of fifteen under the ministry of William Bramwell, he became a local preacher in Leeds and Birstal. Marsland entered the ministry in 1819 and served in England and Scotland until his death, which occurred suddenly shortly after feeling unwell in the pulpit of Fletcher Street Chapel in Bolton, Lancashire.
Marsland was censured by the 1825 Conference, while stationed in Paisley, for making an engagement 'to enter into trade'.
