Life

Born: June 28, 1703, Ep­worth, Lin­coln­shire, Eng­land.

Died: March 2, 1791, Lon­don, Eng­land.

Biography John and his brother Charles founded the Methodist movement. Charles was the main hymnist in the family, but John translated a number of hymns (mostly German) himself. He began studying the German language on board the ship Simmons, which carried him and Charles to Georgia in 1735. Also on the ship were 26 German Moravian colonists, and Wesley wanted to be able to talk with them and share in their worship services.
