    Default Searching for information about H.B.Willis

    I am searching for information about my late grandfather Mr Harry Bernard Willis who was a lay preacher in the Ross on Wye area but appeared to preach on a circuit in the area. I understand he used the name Bernard mostly. I have very little information about him at this time. He married my grandmother, Lily Margaret Malpas, who was his second wife in the last quarter of 1931. I understand the Methodist Local Prachers Who's Who 1934 may be a possible resource for obtaining more information. Many thanks.

    Hello Mary

    I have only joined this site a couple of weeks ago and on looking through the postings I noticed this old one of yours and I noticed that you have the name of one of my ancestors name in the list of Methodist preachers from 1934. His name was Thomas Jackson Metcalfe from Wolsingham, he was my grandmother,s cousin. I was wondering if it gave any details of him in your book. I also had a gt uncle.....Vincent Iley, and a gt granda ...Joseph Collingwood Iley, who were lay preachers. I don,t know if you are still on this site so I hope you get my request.


    Thank You

    Mary has not visited the site since 2010 and we don't know if the email address she gave is still active. Please don't be too disappointed if you don't get a reply

    Not too practised in how these threads work. Is this the place to enter a new query? I would like to find out if the 1934 Who's Who would have a record of a local preacher in Wesleyan and then Methodist Church called John Robert Slater, known as Jack. His church was Husthwaite in Easingwold circuit, N. Yorks. I'm just not really sure if he was the relative who was indeed the preacher.

    Hello Ray and welcome to British-Genealogy

    Mary, who offered to do look ups for Methodist preachers hasn't been on the forums since 2010 and has not answered posts since then so it does look as if you will not receive an answer from her re your request.

    I did a google search and found This site which shows who holds the records and links to other sites. It may help you.

    Hello Mary,
    welcome back. I am so glad you still have the same email address and Ray was able to make contact and receive your help.
    If life isn't too demanding at the moment why not hang around and become re-acquainted with Brit-Gen?
