William Law

William Law

Lived 1686 - 1791

William Law was tutor to Edward Gibbon, father of the historian, who says that Law became the much-honoured friend and spiritual director of the whole family. Law remained in Gibbon’s house for many years as a religious guide not only to the family but to a number of earnest-minded folk who came to consult him. The most eminent of these were the two brothers John and Charles Wesley, John Byrom the poet, George Cheyne the physician and Archibald Hutcheson, MP for Hastings.
