Scrapbook entitled 'Mrs Wesley's Memorial Subscriptions'. The booklet contains newspaper cuttings and a running total detailing all the subscriptions from the public for erecting a memorial to Susanna Wesley (1669-1742).
Susanna was Revd. John Wesley's mother. She was buried in 1742 opposite Wesley's Chapel, then a 'tenter' (or cloth-drying) ground, in Bunhill Fields burial ground. The memorial was erected in the grounds of Wesley's Chapel in 1870.
