You've probably researched this already, but Hugh Bourne lived from 1772 to 1852. He was born at Fordhays in Staffordshire and started his open air meetings around 1807. He was ejected from the Wesleyan Methodists the next year and the "Primitives" (also known as "Ranters") became a sect in 1811/2. Hugh toured UK and Ireland extensively, though he always maintained his work as a carpenter and builder to avoid drawing a stipend from the church. He visited the USA from 1844-46.
Good luck with your digging!
