- The Wesleyan Methodists were the second largest group after the Church of England,
with 15% of all attendances.
Originally led by John and Charles Wesley, by 1851 they had divided into two main
sections, the Wesleyan Methodist Association and the much larger Wesleyan Methodist
Original Connexion, but our figures combine the two.
Their geographical distributions were quite similar, and very different from
the Calvinistic Methodists.
Their strongest concentration was in Cornwall, Kerrier being the only district in the
country where they made up a majority of attendances.
However, most of their members were in eastern Lancashire, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire
and the north-east, with strength in both urban and rural areas.
They were weak in the south-east, apart from Bedfordshire.
