Hinchsliffe, Joseph, a Sheffield manufacturer, and a member of the Wesleyan body, was born at Sheffield in 1760, and died at Dumfries in 1807. Concerning his hymn in the Primitive Methodist Hymnal, 1887, "This is the field, the world below" (Death and the Resurrection), Dorricott and Collins say in their Lyric Studies, 1889, p. 289, "It has been traced to a Tract, entitled Favourite Hymns, Odes, and Anthems, as Sung at the Methodist Chapels in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster and Nottingham Circuits, Fifth edition, 1797, and immediately under the title of this hymn are the words 'By J. Hinchsliffe.'" --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
