Administrative / Biographical History
William Broadbent Luddington was born at Brampton in Lincolnshire on 9th March 1843, the son of the Rev William Luddington (1819-1888), a Primitive Methodist Minister. Initially as an adult he worshipped and preached locally as a Wesleyan but returned to Primitive Methodism at Malton in Yorkshire in 1864. In 1868 he married Ruth Hannah Mitchell. From 1873 until his death in 1888 Luddington divided his life between missionary work in Fernando Po [Bioko, Equatorial Guinea], particularly among the Bubi people, missionary deputation work and ministerial work in England. He and his wife returned from their third term in Fernando Po [Bioko, Equatorial Guinea] in a very poor state of health. Mrs Luddington died on 21st August 1888 and her husband on 25th November in the same year.
