Forum: Non Conformist Records

  1. Were they Baptist?

    My g grandparents, both widowed, were married in a Registry Office in Briton Ferry in 1855. I have always assumed that they were Baptist because one daughter married a Baptist minister and both daughters were pillars of the local Welsh Baptist chapel. Were widow/ers not allowed to marry in chapel?...

  3. Unhappy Baptist records for Surrey and Middlesex

    Where would I start looking for Baptist records in Surrey and Poplar and Deptford in the late 1700's and early 1800's? I was emailed a link to the Poplar Chapel...it was Baptist and demolished after WWII. All these years, I have been searching the C of E and now they might be Baptist.

  6. Spurgeon's Tabernacle

Would some erudite soul know...

  10. What Exactly Is A Circuit?

    I have relatives possibly baptised in the Ely Wesleyan Circuit (Cambridgeshire), and I'm trying to understand what a "Circuit" is. Is it a bit like a Parish, and if so, was it likely to have it's own chapel? Thanks, Brenda
