PM minister, born at Broughton, near Brigg on 6 November 1825. Raised as an Anglican, he joined the PMs in 1842 and became a local preacher the following year. As an itinerant he travelled mainly in the East Riding and Lincolnshire, especially in Grimsby and Hull. A popular, revivalist preacher, active in the Holiness Movement, he proclaimed entire sanctification and published pamphlets on temperance and smoking. He retired to Hull in 1890, died on 19 November 1892 and is buried in 'PM Corner' in Spring Bank Cemetery. His son, Clowes Garner Milson (1857-1932; e.m. 1883) followed him into the ministry.
