House where Susanna Wesley, mother of John Wesley, was born.
At the end of Spital Yard, off Spital Square, a plaque marks the birthplace of Susanna Wesley (1669 1742), nee Annesley, who was the mother of both John and Charles Wesley. They were a numerically impressive family. Susanna the daughter of a Puritan family married Samuel Wesley an Anglican minister in Lincolnshire. She bore him nineteen children. Few of whom survived infancy; but John and Charles went on to found Methodism. John, the preacher, travelled 250,000 miles and preached 40,000 sermons, while his brother Charles wrote 5,500 hymns including "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing." Note the blue plaque above the centre window on the ground floor.
