The Waddy family produced six Wesleyan ministers in the 1800s. This engraving shows Revd. Dr Samuel Dousland Waddy (1804-1876). Waddy believed firmly in the value of education and Wesley College, Sheffield, was established with his initiative and assistance. There, he served as governor and chaplain between 1844 and 1862. Waddy was elected President of the Conference in 1859.
