Joseph Griffith (b.1785)
Joseph Griffith entered the Wesleyan itinerancy in 1809 after serving as a local preacher in the Birmingham circuit.
He served as a circuit minister in England until 1838 when he is recorded in the Conference minutes as having left the Connexion. The journal records that he had been charged with immorality but declined to answer the accusation.
Griffith's wife Ann died in 1834 shortly after the death of a daughter who was also named Ann.
