John Trevor (1787-1864) was the father of Henry Trevor. He lived in Wisbech, and was a ‘retired Lincolnshire farmer – a fine old Puritan, who shaved on Saturday night to avoid needless labour on the Sabbath.’ His grandson goes on to say that he ‘had rectitude indelibly stamped’ upon him. He had led his family away from worship in the established church into dissent, and had become a ‘Johnsonian’ Baptist. They were a small sect, with one chapel in Wisbech and one in Norwich, which exchanged preachers, and it was this connection which drew Henry Trevor to Norwich.
