Charles Skelton (fl.1747-1755)

Charles Skelton was converted by Methodist preaching in Ireland in 1747 and entered the itinerancy a year later. He suffered considerable persecution and was one of ten preachers arraigned before the assizes with Charles Wesley in 1749 for disturbing the King's peace.

Skelton left Methodism in 1755 and settled as an independent minister in Bury, Lancashire.
