17841872, May 10
an English Methodist and miscellaneous writer. The most important event in Everett's life was his expulsion from the Wesleyan conference in August 1849. For many years he had been opposed to the policy and working of that body, and had published anonymously several volumes of free criticism, such as The Disputants in 1835, in which he argued against the scheme for starting a theological college for the training of ministers. He was the author of the chief part of Wesleyan Takings, a work in two volumes, containing disparaging sketches of the preachers. In 1845 and following years certain clandestine pamphlets, called ‘Fly Sheets,’ were circulated widely, bearing neither printer's nor publisher's names.
