ENGLAND’S CHRISTIAN HERITAGE
Samuel Wesley was rector of St. Andrews Church, Epworth, from 1695 to 1735.
Samuel and Susanna lived in the rectory. Susanna, bore him at least 19 children, although only seven daughters and three sons - Samuel Jr, John and Charles - survived to adulthood. Susanna educated all her children diligently and instilled in them the methodical approach that would later characterize her sons' approach to religion.
