William Sutcliffe (1772-1833)

William Sutcliffe was a native of Yorkshire. He entered the itinerancy in 1804 and served for fourteen years as a missionary in Newfoundland, Bermuda and Canada. Sutcliffe returned to England in 1822 in a poor state of health including mental problems. He superannuated in 1825 and spent the rest of his life in Manchester where he continued to minister as a class leader. The death of Sutcliffe's wife on 4 April 1832 affected him greatly and he died four days later from the same illness that killed his wife.
