Thread: John Wroe

    John Wroe

    I've recently discovered that a 19th century preacher called John Wroe was born and lived near my home. He founded the Christian Israelite Church but aside from some general Wikipedia information and the undoubtedly biassed views of the existing church I can find very little information about him. Does anyone know more about his story?
