Ann Cutler (1759-1794), English Methodist, converted by William Bramwell. "Cutler was with Hester Rogers one of the first woman preachers." Her work with Bramwell is credited with promoting the revivals at Derby, Lancashire, and Cheshire.

William Bramwell (1759-1818), an Englishman with Anglican heritage. Bramwell entered the Methodist itinerancy in 1786 and exercised an active circuit ministry until his sudden death. “Bramwell was an evangelist of remarkable powers, particularly noted for his success in inspiring revivals. During his first appointment to Sheffield between 1795 and 1797, the circuit reported a net increase of 1,500 despite the loss of nearly 1,000 members to the New Connexion. Despite his ability and considerable reputation on both sides of the Atlantic, Bramwell never achieved high office in the Wesleyan Church. This was probably due to his sympathy with dissident elements within Wesleyan Methodism and some elements of his personal spirituality such as his claim to possess the power of discernment of spirits.” – Methodist Archives Biographical Index.
