Robert Young (1796-1865), English Wesleyan minister. He was sent as a missionary to Kingston, Jamaica, in 1820. He was in Nova Scotia (1826-29), visited the United States, and returned to England in 1830. He ministered to various British circuits and wrote several tracts and books until 1852, when he and Rev. John Kirk were appointed a deputation to visit Australia and the South Sea Island to determine if the Wesleyan churches of those area could be united as a self-supporting body. Sailing troubles left the two men separated, and Young continued on the journey alone, with Kirk returning to England. Young arrived at Port Adelaide in May of 1853, and preached to crowds in Melbourne. He visited several places in Australia, sailed to New Zealand, Tonga, and Fiji, returning to Australia where the proposal for the self-supporting church was accepted. In eighteen months he had traveled 40,000 miles. Young published a record of this travels in 1854, The Southern World. - Australian Dictionary of Biography, vol. 6.
