Thornborrow, Henry of Peaselands, King's Meaburn (1784-1846)

Henry Thornborrow or Thornburrow ( contemporaries wrote down what they heard) farmed at Peaselands, near King’s Meaburn in Westmorland, with his sister Margaret. The family had become Methodists around 1800, but like many members of the local chapels had joined the Wesleyan Association when it formed in the 1830s. His minister clearly felt that he was a suitable exemplar of someone who had been moved by faith, and remained committed throughout a long period of illness, so his obituary was published in The Wesleyan Methodist Association Magazine for 1846. Vol. 9, pages 525-6

Henry’s home was also his chapel. A recent photograph may be found  here
