Mary Titherington (1770-1817)

Mary Titherington was born in Prescot, Lancashire. She moved to Liverpool at the age of twenty-eight and shortly afterwards began to attend Methodist preaching. She was converted after hearing a sermon by George Morley and from about 1802 served as a class leader. Her health began to fail in July 1817 and she died on November 10th of the same year.

Titherington enjoyed a considerable reputation for holiness. Extracts from her journal were published after her death by the Wesleyan minister Henry Moore.
