Daniel Walton (1792-1862)
Daniel Walton was converted in early life and entered the ministry in 1814 on the recommendation of the Manchester circuit. His active circuit work lasted until superannuation in 1857. He retired to Huddersfield where he continued to lead a class until his death following attacks of paralysis on December 9 1862.
His conference obituary described his preaching as 'expository and instructive. If not fitted for popular effect, his discourses were admirably adapted to "feed the flock of God". He was also a man of 'remarkable simplicity, and unsuspecting of evil designs, he was open to some special dangers; and that he did not always escape these...was to himself occasion of lasting sorrow'.
