- Richard Tabraham (1792-1878) was born in Ely in East Anglia. His family moved to London when he was ten years old and he was converted under Methodist influence at the age of eighteen. He began to preach in 1813 and was accepted for the Wesleyan ministry two years later. His active Circuit ministry lasted fifty-four years and took him to Circuits in England, Scotland and the Shetlands. Tabraham became a supernumary in 1869 and settled in Hackney, London.

From 10 St George's Terrace, Islington, London, to [Richard] Tabraham [stationed in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk]. He had hoped to be able to accept Tabraham's kind invitation and preach at Bury but it is impossible to find a free Sunday in May. He has to take two Sundays in April and one in May for mission deputation work and so cannot really take another.
