George Sargent (d.1823)

George Sargent was born in Rye, Sussex. He was raised in the Church of England and converted to Methodism at the age of twenty.

After gaining experience as a class leader and local preacher, he entered the itinerancy in 1790. Sargent exercised an active circuit ministry for thirty-three years, principally in the North of England.

Sargent sustained fatal injuries when his carriage overturned on the way to the 1823 Conference. He died a few days after the accident. His ministerial colleague Edward Lloyd was also fatally injured.
