Administrative/Biographical history: Wesleyan Methodists began making in-roads in to south Wales during the mid-eighteenth century, and a Glamorganshire Circuit was established in 1765. In 1796 the circuit was divided into two smaller units, Swansea serving the west, and Cardiff the east. In 1817 Cardiff was divided into English and Welsh circuits, and in 1848 Bridgend split from Cardiff, forming its own circuit.
