Sarah Myles (1762-1847)

Sarah Myles was born in Dublin, the daughter of Richard Moore Esq.

Her mother was a staunch Anglican but also entertained John Wesley during his visits to the city. Sarah's brother Henry became a well-known Methodist minister and President of Conference.

All of the family was converted under Methodist influence, although in Sarah's case it was by the preaching of John Fletcher during his visit to Ireland in September 1784. She joined the Methodist society in May 1785.

Sarah was married to the itinerant William Myles. She died at her home in Liverpool on 27th August 1847 after a long illness.
