Two useful books are:
My Ancestors Were Methodists by William Leary
Published by the Society of Genealogists
Mr Wesley’s Preachers by Kenneth Garlick
ISBN 901 262 18 8
Published by Pinhorns for the World Methodist Historical Society
This was a limited edition and I have a copy from which I will do look-ups if you cannot get hold of a copy personally.
