- Sarah Crosby was inclined towards Calvinism as a young woman, but joined the Methodists after hearing Wesley preach, and was appointed to be a class leader at the Foundery. In 1761 she became the first female preacher, and with Wesley's encouragement travelled extensively between London and Yorkshire. She died in Leeds in 1804.
