Edward Nowers (fl. 1740-1745)

Edward Nowers was a member of a Moravian church at Herrnhaag but joined with the Wesleys after moving to London in 1740. He was closely associated with the brothers in the early days of the Methodist movement and is referred to several times in their personal papers, such as the letter from John Wesley to James Hutton dated 21 March 1740.

In November 1742 Nowers was listed among the married men in the bands for those 'on trial' at the Foundery and by 1745 he was a member of the regular bands there together with his wife Margaret.
