He's in the 1880 list of meetings as one of the contacts for Barnsley.
His address is given there as:
The Hawthorns, Locke Park.

He was also responsible for The Book of Numbers in the New Testament, Belfast 1904.

There was a Mr Doughty at Hoyland Common Glanton meeting (just south of Barnsley) until it closed in the late 1970s. One wonders if there is a connection.

"The Book of Numbers in the New Testament, Belfast 1904." Isn't that the one that became like gold-dust a couple years ago as everyone in the PBCC suddenly wanted a copy

What was the reason behind PBCC's sudden interest in J.D's " The Book of Numbers in the New Testament"?

I can't remember now, or even if I ever knew in the first place. It happens occasionally though when one of their chief's recommends something. In the following days/weeks Chapter 2 will then be inundated with requests to the second hand department for that item!

From c1870 ~ 1876, he was a Circuit Secretary for "The Wesleyan Reform Union." See their magazine "Christian Words"
"Job Doughty, A Secretary of the Wesleyan Reform Union 1875, & Circuit Minister. Salem Chapel, Blucher Street, Barnsley. Bro. J. Doughty, of Carbrook, Sheffield Circuit, commenced his labours amongst us as a missionary deputation. He began his missionary tour by preaching two sermons at Bakewell. . . . From Bakewell, he moved on to the north part of the circuit, and held some first-rate meetings at Eyam, Foolow, Stony Middleton, and Grindleford Bridge. His second Sunday was spent at Youlgreave, . . . His third Sunday was spent at Stanton, and his fourth Sabbath at Elton. . . . Our Brother Doughty came among us as a servant of the Lord Jesus, and worked his way through the circuit, as Paul would have done, knowing nothing among the churches but Christ and Him crucified. His great forte was visiting and rousing up the people in their homes. Hundreds of families have been visited, hundreds of tracts have been distributed, and scores of prayers have been offered in the dwellings of the poor in the wild Peak district; and the seed thus sown will, we believe, rise into a great and immortal harvest. . . . Our prayer is that God may bless the mission, and that His servant (our friend and Brother Doughty) may wear many bright stars in his crown, won for Jesus, during his visit amongst us in the Peak of Derbyshire."
J. W. Toft, Circuit Secretary.
