      The Friends testimony relating to John Bevington of Ettington, who died in 1755 informs us: That in his early years he began to run in the paths of virtue and righteousness, and being of a cheerful, active, generous temper, quick of apprehension and of sound judgment, he became more than ordinarily useful in his generation as a man, as well as, though Devine favour as a Christian and a Minister. In his public testimony he was considered, sound, as from one whose lips had been touched by a live coal from the altar. He travelled much in the Ministry in England, Scotland and Ireland.
