William Walker (b.1800)

William Walker of the Chester circuit was recommended to Conference in 1819 to join the itinerancy.

He had no marital engagements and volunteered for overseas missions.

Sent to New South Wales, Walker was censured by his District meeting in 1825 for 'accepting a situation in the orphan asylum...incompatible with his engagements as a missionary'.

He was expelled by the following year's Conference for 'having improperly entangled himself with the affairs of this life'.
