1778 – James Relly died. A prominent Methodist preacher in London, Relly fell into disfavor with his church in the 1730s because he preached universal salvation. John Murray attended Relly’s worship reluctantly. Murray converted to Universalist belief and left England in 1770 to become the first Universalist preacher in America.
