Josiah Nix

Josiah Nix (1847-1924) became a well known evangelical and temperance preacher and was part of the growth of Methodism in Oxford , where he was influenced by the ministry of the Rev Hugh Price Hughes. He later moved on to London and became well known across the Methodist Connexion.

A broad-shouldered, stocky man with a racy sense of humour, an unconventional style and a commanding voice, Nix relished the cut-and-thrust of open-air preaching.

His father James (1810-73)  was an Oxford City police officer,  and his mother Emma (1814-95) , and his older brother James (1835-1909) were also active members of the New Inn Hall Street Wesleyan Society.
