His greatest friend was William Howels , who brought him to the notice of David Jones of Llan-gan . He now began to consort with the Methodists , but, although he attended their societies and associations and was one of the trustees of their chapels in Glamorgan , he succeeded in retaining his Church of England appointment until his death. He was probably the last clergyman in Wales to be associated with the Methodists .
His brother ELIAS BASSETT , a lawyer , was for many years the leading layman in the Methodist connexion in Glamorgan .
