Biographical history

Rev. Edward Barrass (1821-1898) was born in Durham, England. He worked in mines as a child, and was called to ministry of the Primitive Methodist Church in 1841. In 1853 he emigrated to Canada where he worked throughout the country until he was superannuated in 1891. He was an avid author, and published many volumes on church history and general life. He contributed to such publications as the Christian Guardian, and Canadian Methodist Magazine and was also very involved in the Temperance Movement.
