Portraits of some female Bible Christian ministers

Some of the very few portraits known to exist.

Compiled by Colin C Short

The three portraits are of …. Mary Thorne (1807-83), nee O’Bryan, who married Samuel Thorne, the Connexion’s printer, on 2 November 1825; her gravestone describes her as “a minister sixty years;” her son Samuel Ley Thorne was a BC minster and her grandson Samuel Thomas Thorne was a BC missionary in China; … Lois Thorne (1858-25 November 1904), nee Malpas, a Wesleyan who went to China with the China Inland Mission; married Samuel Thomas Thorne 24 April 1888; widowed in September 1891; returned to China as a fully recognised BC missionary in 1894; … Annie Carkeek (1871-12 December 1932), a Wesleyan who was accepted as a BC itinerant in 1894, but stepped down to become an Evangelist with the BCs in 1895; she returned to the Wesleyans in Hayle Circuit in 1901 as a Local Preacher.

  • Ferguson talked him round making him stay on an extra season, but couldn’t prevent
    him from finally giving to the lure of the
    most popular football club on earth – Real Madrid. Sometimes local stores and eateries close with an hour
    or so during hot afternoons. If you do really go to
    town the queue, the path vendor opposite sells beer.
