Charles Beswick 18? - 1878

William Royle, a deeply committed follower of the Temperance movement referred to Charles Beswick as a working man & lay preacher for the Wesleyans at Ladybarn and Fallowfield. Charles Beswick founded a Wesleyan Sunday School for children in Rusholme in 1828. The pamphlet below is in total some 23 pages long, for brevity I have just copied the first paragraph of page 5 to display on this page. If you wish to read the entire document I have scanned it to a PDF file so can download it by clicking below.
