Illogan - John Wesly (1750-1773)

John Wesley went to Illogan a few times; he wrote in his journal on September 5th 1757, 'I rode on to Illogan, but not to the house where I used to preach; indeed his wife promised Mr P before he died that she would always receive the preachers, but she soon changed her mind. God has just taken her only son, suddenly killed by a pit falling upon him; and on Tuesday last a young, strong man, riding to his burial, dropped off his horse stone dead. The concurrance of these awful providences added considerably to our congregations.'
