    Biographical history

    Egerton Ryerson Young, a Methodist minister, was born in 1840 in Crosby, Upper Canada, the son of Rev. William Young. He attended the Provincial Normal School in Toronto and then taught at Madoc in 1862. In the summer of 1863 he started in the service of the Wesleyan Methodist Church at Tweed. He was ordained in 1867 and served at First Methodist Church in Hamilton until 1868 when he undertook mission work with Indigenous People in Norway House, Manitoba. He had served for eight years when ill-health forced him to return to Ontario. He then ministered to pastorates in Port Perry, Colborne, Bowmanville, Meaford and Brampton until his retirement in 1888. Thereafter, he became a lecturer and embarked on extensive speaking tours in the United States, Europe and Australia. He wrote about his missionary work and the history of missions in North America and how the work to christianize Aboriginal People was undertaken.

    He was married to Elizabeth Bingham. He died in Bradford, Ontario in 1909.
