    Samuel Annesley, English Puritan (1620 -- December 31, 1696) was a Presbyterian who was ejected from his pulpit at St. Giles Cripplegate for nonconformity in 1662. He edited and contributed to the Cripplegate Sermons, including The Adherent Vanity of Every Condition is Most Effectually Abated by Serious Godliness. He was among the signers of the Epistle Commending the Westminster Standards. He had 25 children, one of whom was Susanna Wesley, mother of John Wesley. His funeral sermon was preached by Daniel Williams.
