PREFACE. 



The Act for the Civil Registration of Births, Marriages, and Deaths came into 
operation on ist of July, 1837, which superseded for civil purposes the Old Parochial 
and Non-Parochial Registers. It has been repeatedly urged that the Registers before 
that date should, for the purposes of preservation, be transcribed and printed. Many 
old Parish Registers have been printed by private persons and by the Parish Register 
Societies, and such work is steadily progressing throughout the country, but very few 
of the old Non-Parochial Registers, which supply much supplementary matter, have as 
yet been published. 

The Parochial Registers of Dudley, which commence in the year 1540, comprise 
22 volumes to the year 181 2. There is every likelihood of the transcription and 
publication of those Registers being undertaken by the Parish Register Society. 

The Old Non-Parochial Registers of Dudley, here produced, contain over Three 
Thousand entries of Births, Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths, and Burials of Nonconformists 
from 1656 to 1837. 

By way of introduction to each Register I have given a short historical sketch 
of the Meeting House or Chapel to which the Register formerly belonged.

Introduction. 

EORGE FOX, the originator of the 
Society of Friends, commonly called 
Quakers, was born at Drayton, in 
Leicestershire, in 1624. About 1646 he 
left off attending church for divine 
worship. His first efforts at proselytism 
were made in or near Manchester in 
1647 or 1648. He afterwards travelled throagh 
various parts of the Midland Counties. His followers 
were first contemptuously called " Quakers," at Derby 
in 1650 by Justice Bennet. The passing of the Act of 
Uniformity in 1662, and the Conventicle Acts, instead 
of stamping out Nonconformity, considerably increased 
it. The Quakers gloried in their sufferings, and were 
so resolute as to assemble openly, soldiers and other 
officials dragging them off to prison. It is re- 
corded that on the 2nd May, 1665, four Friends 
of Dudley were seized by one Major Wilde 
and a troop of horsemen, and taken to Wor- 
cester gaol, kept there thirteen days till the Assizes 
and Sessions were over, and then committed to the 
common gaol for three months without any trial or 
even being brought into open Court. At the expira- 
tion of their time of imprisonment, these Friends 
were brought into open Court and fined 12d each, and 
then dismissed. The heinous crime with which they 
had been charged was " that they would not take an 
oath." In 1673 Fox himself was imprisoned for some 



time in Worcester gaol. Eventually the Act of 
Toleration was passed in 1689. Fox died in London 
in 1691. 

It was on the first day of the sixth month (August) 
of 1674 that Robert Nayle, for ,£10, sold to the 
Friends a piece of land 33 feet long and 23 feet wide, 
with a footway through other land of the said Robert 
Nayle from it to High Street, in Dudley. It was to be 
held for such purposes as " the members of the 
Society of Friends assembled in Quarterly or Monthly 
Meeting shall direct." On the twentieth day of the 
third month (May), 1676, the trustees bought of 
the same Robert Nayle, tor «£85, a house in 
High Sheet, Dudley, with a garden and newly- 
erected cottage at the lower end of the back side. 
On the tweuty-third day of the fourth month (April) 
1794, the property was leased for forty years Q> 
Thomas Martin in consideration of an outlay of £700 
on the Meeting House and adjacent premises. 

The earliest entry in the registers is the birth of 
Thomas, son of Henry Fidoe, on the 12th day of the 
8th month 'October), 1656. The volume from which 
the 457 entries are taken is with other non-parochial 
registers in the custody of the Registrar General at 
Somerset House, London, the reference number 
being 1184, and the description : Marriages, 1662—1774; 
Births, 1656-1801; Burials, 1662—1827. The 
volume consists of some 40 leaves, is 15 inches long 
and 6 inches broad, 'and strongly bound in vellum, 
internal evidence seems to point to] the fact that io 



The Society of Friends' Meeting. 



originally contained other matter. Inserted on the 
front cover ia a piece of older vellum, on which is 
written " H. Dudley." The leaves have' been care- 
fully mended. The entries do not seem always to 
have been made at the time of the events recorded, 
and are occasionally somewhat confusing, but so far as 
possible their order is here preserved. Some of the 
entries are very faded. The spelling of the 
names, &c, is retained. The marriage con- 
tracts, 1662—1706, are with slight verbal 
alterations the same as the two specimens given 
which have annexed the greatest number of witnesses v 
names. From the prominence given to these two, 
and the extra care seemingly bestowed upon their 
copying by the clerk, it may not unreasonably be 
supposed, that these were marriages of the most 
important members of the Dudley Friends and that 
the names of the witnesses are those of the persons 
connected with the Society. 

As this ia the only Non-parochial Register of 
Dudley containing entries of marriages, some 
explanation of such marriages, outside the Church of 
England, and in a Dissenters' place of meeting is 
considered necessary. 

Before the Marriage Act of 1754, a marriage by 
sufficient words of present espousal constituted a 
binding marriage, though not celebrated in facie 
ecclesice. At the common law the presence of a 
priest in holy orders was essential. The Quakers 
were however bold enough to ignore the Church even 
in the rites of marriage. The Marriage Act of 1754 was 
passed to put an end to irregular marriages and required 
certain forms, such as banns or licence, to be adopted 
and made it compulsory that marriages should be 
solemnized in the Church of England. The marriages 
amongst Quakers or Jews, where both parties were 
Quakers or Jews, were expressly excepted from that 
Act. The Act of 10 and 11 Vic, c. 58, removed doubts 
which existed as to the validity of the marriages 
amongst Quakers and Jews solemnized before 1st July, 
1837, according to their usage, by enacting that such 
marriages ll were and are good in law," provided both 
parties were Quakers or Jews respectively. 

The dates prior to 1752 are according to the old 
style. The year formerly commeuced on 25th March, 
and not, as according to the new style, the 1st of 
January. The first month was then March. 

The Society of Friends are particularly careful in 
causing notices to be sent to their Monthly and 
Quarterly meetings of all births, marriages, and 
burials of or connected with the members of their 
community. 

The following are the forms of their registers and 
notices : —

were removed in consequence of an Advice in 1727 for 
that purpose.

prised Birmingham, Dudley, Stourbridge, &c, and it 
may be that there are entries in those registers of the 
births, marriages, and burials of some of the Dudley 
Friends. The registers of this monthly meeting at 
Somerset House with the reference numbers are : —

THE OLD MEETING HOUSE, 



WOLVERHAMPTON STREET, DUDLEY. 




Introduction. 

HE Old Meeting Congregation legally 
known as "Protestant Dissenters" were 
originally Presbyterians but are now 
Unitarians and can be traced back to 
the year 1662 when something like 
2,000 ministers were ejected throughout 
England from the Church of England, 
chiefly by the Act of Uniformity of 
that year. The first chapel was erected 
in 1702 and was destroyed by rioters in 1715. It was 
rebuilt in 1717. The transition from old Presbyterian- 
ism to Unitarianism was apparently brought about 
by reason of the trust deed being one of the open kind 
" for the worship of God" and the progressive change 
of thought, The Rev George Eyre Evans (author of 
Vestiges of Protestant Dissent) in his coming work 
on " Midland Churches" being the histories of all 
the Congregations now on the roll of the Midland 
Christian Union and in which this congregation is 
included has devoted especial attention to the history 
of this Meeting House. It will contain biographies of 
the ministers with numerous fac simile autographs, par- 
ticulars of the buildings.of the now extinct but impor- 
tant Dudley Double Lecture, of Baylies' and Parsons' 
Schools, extracted from early prints and Government 
documents, of the Inhsdge Burial Ground and the 
Dudley Book Society. Mr Eyre Evans having sub- 
mitted to me his valuable manuscript for perusal and 
revision it would be an ungracious act on my part to 
narrate here what he has written and intends for 
publication. His work will probably be in the hands 
of the public during the current year (1899;. 



Next to the most interesting Quakers', or more 
properly Friends' Register, which began in 1656, 
those of the Old Meeting are the oldest of the local 
Non-Parochial records. The original registers were 
deposited by the Rev. John Palmer, B.A., with the 
Registrar-General, and are now at Somerset House. 
They comprise two volumes. No. I. includes baptisms 
for the period 1743 to 1772, and is a thin square 
volume bound in vellum, and contains mainly entries 
by the Rev. James Hancox, who was minister from 
1733 to 1769, he being the fourth after the beginning 
of the congregation. His predecessors were the Revs. 
John Southwell, William Willetts, and Joseph 
Stokes. Register No. II. is an octavo volume, bound 
in vellum, and contains entries of births and baptisms 
from 1775 to 1837, and burials from 1831 to 1835. 
This period covers the ministries of the Revs. Wm. 
Denny Wood, 1771 to 1804; James Hews Bransby, 
1805 to 1828 ; Samuel Bache, 1829 to 1832 ; and John 
Palmer, B.A. 

Before the registers were sent to public custody a 
transcript was taken of them by the foresight of Mr 
Palmer, and from this transcript now in the keeping 
of the trustees of the Old Meeting House, the entries 
have been taken. The original registers have been 
carefully examined by Mr Eyre Evans in connection 
with his work on " Midland Churches." 

In addition to the Registers at Somerset House, the 
trustees have in their keeping a book containing 
deaths and burials from 1811. The entries from this 
book to the year 1837 will be found at the end of the 
other registers of this meeting. Those names which 
appear in the register lodged with the Registrar- 
General are not repeated in the additional list.

Introduction. 

5 HE Register Book of this Congregation 
is No 11 of the Worcestershire Non- 
Parochial Registers at Somerset House, 
and is a bound brown leather volume, 
14 inches by 9 inches, and contains 
about 260 entries of births and baptisms 
from 1803 to 1837. The Rev. James 
Dawson was the minister when it was 
pursuant to the Act of Parliament, 
with the Registration Commissioners. The date of 
the foundation of the denomination is given as 1788. 
The Countess of Huntingdon's students and ministers 
laboured for a considerable time prior to 1788 iu a 
dwelling-house in King Street. The first chapel was 
erected in 1788 by her Ladyship's Connexion, and by 
a deed dated 22nd April, 1788, and made between 
George Creighton, of Dudley, linen draper, of the first 
part, Wm. Hughes, f Dudley, baker and maltster, of 
the second part, the Right Honourable Selina, 
Countess of Huntingdon, of the third part, and the 
Rev William Jones, of Dudley, of the fourth part, a 
piece of land, part of Anthoney's Meadow, was con- 
veyed to, and vested io, the Countess, together with 
the Meeting House erected thereon, to be held for the 
purposes of the Countess' Connexion but so that no 
tower or steeple should be put on the meeting 
house. In consequence of the insufficiency of supplies 
and other reasons, the Conutess' cause, it would seem, 
did not prosper in Dudley. About this time there 
was a serious religious disagreement amongst the 
Protestant Dissenters of the Old Meeting House in 
Wolverhampton Street, and in consequence thereof, 
many persons seceded from that congregation 
and acquired the chapel in King Street, and 



transformed it into a Congregational or 
Independent Church. By a deed dated the 4th day 
of December, 1788, aud made between the Right 
Honourable Selina, Countess of Huntingdon of the 
one part, and the Rev William Taylor, clerk ; William 
Penu, glass merchant ; Edward Davies. ironmonger ; 
Joseph Johnson, baker; Thomas Hateley, gentleman; 
George Jones, builder; William Hartel, cordwainer ; 
Benjamin Vanes, ironmonger; Joseph Underhill, the 
elder, hinge maker; Henry Blews, gentleman ; Samuel 
Hammond, of Birmingham, gentleman ; William 
Whiley, gentleman; George Macmillan, button maker; 
Thomas Sidaway, ironmonger ; Joseph Edwards, car- 
penter; Samuel Loynes, buckle maker; John Cardale, 
gentleman ; John Skidmore, mercer; Joseph Linney, 
mercer; and Samuel Edge, potter of the other part, 
the Meeting House was conveyed by the Countess to 
the persons mentioned as trustees for the purposes of 
the Independent cause. The Chapel then stood on 
what is now the burial ground nearer to New Mill 
Street. There was no settled minister for some years, 
the chapel being supplied by occasional ministers 
from the district. In 1801, Mr James Dawson came 
as a minister on probation and on June 1st, 1803, he 
was ordained to the pastoral office and the following 
certificate was granted to him. 

This is to certify that our brother, the Rev James 
Dawson, was regularly set apart to the Pasto- 
ral office in the Church of Christ, meetiug^in 
King Street, Dudley, in the County of Worces- 
ter, on the 1st day of June, 1803. — J. Brewer,

Althoogh additions were made to the old Chapel in 
1809, 1815, 1819, and 1824 the place was too small to 
accommodate its congregation, and after much 
deliberation it ^as decided to erect a new chapel upon 
a large scale, and on the 21st May, 1839, the founda- 
tion stone was laid for the present edifice on an ad- 
joining piece of land to the old chapel. The present 
chapel, erected at a oost of something like £3,500, 
with 1,200 sittings was opened for Divine worship in 
1841, under the pastorship of the Rev. James Dawson. 
Thia minister died December 23rd, 1843, aged 65, after 
labouring for over forty years as minister of this con- 
gregation. A monument in the chapel records his 
death and excellency. In 1820 the only old trustees 
surviving were Joseph Underhill, the elder, of Dud- 
ley, hingemaker ; and Samuel Hammond, of Birming- 
ham, gentleman ; and by deed dated 26th 
May, 1820, they vested the chapel property 
in the following new trustees : — James Wood, 
John Wilson, mercer ; James 
George Wheldon, maltster ; 
William Whitehouse, carrier ; John Whitehouse, 
carrier ; Bate Phillips Penn, druggist ; James Rogers, 
watohmaker ; William Mainwaring, ground bailiff ; 
all of Dudley; Joseph Underhill, the younger, of 
Wolverhampton, ironmonger; Thomas Heathcote, 
of Gornal, minister ; John Hall, of Gornal, nail 
factor; Thomas Maurice, of Kingswinford, gentle- 
man ; George Brain, of Tipton, maltster; Thomas 



glass manufacturer 
Grigg, confectioner 



Hateley Hawkes, of West Bromwich, gentleman ; 
Thomas Rogers, of Wednesbnry, watohmaker ; Rice 
Harris, of Birmingham, glass manufacturer ; and 
Daniel Bagnall, coal master. New trustees were 
again appointed in 1862. In Mr Dawson's succession 
in the pastorate have been— the Revs. John Raven, 
1844-1848 (born February 14th, 1806, died March 
7th, 1875) ; Daniel Kirkby Shoebotham, 1849-1862 
born August 5th, 1805, died January 14th, 
1885) ; Thomas Wickham Tozer, 1863 ; George Wade 
Robinson 1868—1871 (born September 10th, 1838, 
died January 23rd, 1877) ; Frederic Mann 1871 ; J. M. 
Fox, 1876; James Hannay Valentine, 1882; and 
Benjamin Byron Williams, 1887. The present minister 
Rev Albert Matthias Gardner, began his ministry on 
July 10th, 1892. 

One of the requirements ot the Civil Registration 
of Births (1837) that the maiden surname of the 
mother of the ohild registered should be given, seems 
to have been anticipated by the recorder of the births 
and baptisms of this congregation, inasmuch, as in 
many instances the maiden surname of the mother of 
the child appears in parenthesis or brackets in the 
register. 

There is no entry in the Burial Register in the 
possession of the present trustees of this congregation 
prior to 1840.

THE WESLEYAN METHODIST CHAPEL, 

KING STREET, DUDLEY. 




Introduction. 

HE two volumes from which the entries 
of births and baptisms relating to this 
denomination are taken also contain 
baptisms of Oldbury and other places. 
They are, with other non-parochial 
registers, in the custody of the Regis- 
trar-General at Somerset House, the 
reference number being 14 of the 
Worcestershire registers. No. I is a book with vellum 
back and corners, 7 inches by 8 inches, and contains 
entries of births and baptisms from 1804 to 1824 with 
one of 1796. The entries are not in chronological order. 
No. II. is bound in rough leather and measures 8i 
inches by 13 inches, and contains entries of births and 
baptisms from 1824 to 1837 on printed forms. The 
date of the foundation of the denomination is given as 
1788 

The chapel, a fine brick edifice, forming a centre 
with two projecting wings used as residences, was 
erected between 1788 and 1790. Considerable 
additions and alterations have been made to it since 
its erection, particularly in 1818, when the inscription 
stone — 

Methodist Chapel, 
1818 
was placed in the front gable of the chapel. The 
chapel contains abont 850 sittings. 

The chapel buildings were erected on a piece of 
land containing 954 square yards (part of the Church- 
field Estate), fronting to Back Lane (now called King 
Street) in Dudley. This piece of land was purchased 
by Joseph Moore, of Dudley, cordwainer, for £53 lis 
4d, as appears by a deed dated 2nd April, 1787, made 
between John Finch, of Dudley, Esquire, of the first 
part ; John Scott, of Stourbridge, clothier, and 
Thomas Lee, the younger, of Dudley, gentleman, of 
the second part ; William Laugher, of Dudley, iron- 
monger, of the third part ; Joseph Moore, of the 
fourth part, and Joseph Jewkes, of Dudley, coal 
bailiff (a trustee for Joseph Moore), of the fifth part ; 
and by a subsequent deed, dated 31st July, 1788, 
made between Joseph Moore and Joseph Jewkes, of 



the first part ; Squire Knight, of Dudley, cordwainer, 
of the second part, and John Leadbetter, dealer ; 
Riohard Southall, yeoman ; Aaron Timmins, white- 
smith ; William Griffin, weaver, all of Dudley ; 
Timothy Tilley, of Rowley Regis, farmer ; William 
Southall, of Dudley, nailer; Wilfred Colley, of Bir- 
mingham, coal merchant; Robert Hughes, of Bir- 
mingham, clerk ; James Winn, of Wolverhampton, 
cooper ; John Negus, of Wednesbury, farmer ; Ed- 
ward Cooper, of Wednesbury, baker; and John Bate, 
of Dudley, cordwainer, the land was conveyed to and 
vested in, the parties named of the third part, upon 
trust to erect a preaching house thereon, to be used 
in accordance with a deed poll executed by John 
Wesley and enrolled in Chancery in 1784. The deed 
of 31st July, 1788, was duly enrolled in Chancery on 
12th November, 1788, and so commenced the Wes- 
leyan Methodist cause in King Street, Dudley. 

By deeds dated 15th and 16th October, 1810, Aaron 
Timmins, William Griffin, Timothy Tilley, William 
Southall, Wilfred Colley, James Winn, Edward 
Cooper, and John Bate (as surviving trustees, men- 
tioned in the deed ot 1788) with Squire Knight, 
appointed the following new or additional trustees, 
Benjamiu Leadbetter, gentleman ; Alexander Gordon, 
wine merchant; Joseph Stinson, grocer; Aaron 
Knight, druggist; Samuel Dunn, grocer; William 
Story, glass manufacturer ; Samuel Hollis, glass- 
maker ; Joseph Timmins, fire-iron maker, and Samuel 
Diggory, pattern maker, all of Dudley, of the piece of 
land comprised in the deed of 1788, with the chapel or 
preaching house, and the two messuages or dwelling- 
houses adjoining each end thereof, and all other 
buildings erected thereon. The description of the 
premises in these deeds clearly points to the fact that 
the main buildings, as they now stand, were certainly 
erected prior to October, 1810, and not in 1818, as the 
stone inscription referred to would seem to imply. 
The same description of the premises is given in the 
deeds appointing new or additional trustees dated 13th 
and 14th June, 1824, which were made between William 
Griffin, weaver ; and Samuel Dunn, grocer, both of 
Dudley of the first part, IJeujamin Leadbetter, gentle- 
man ; Alexander Gordon, wine merchant ; Joseph 
Stinson, grocer : and Joseph Timmins, fire-iron maker

of the second part, and Thomas Lester, pork mer- 
chant ; George England, maltster ; Timothy Tilley, 
currier ; William Shedden, draper ; David Clarke, 
miner; George Neath, miner ; George Bailey, dealer 
in provisions ; Luke Jewkes, gentleman ; and William 
Izod, tailor, all of Dudley of the third part. 

The next appointment of trustees of the chapel is of 
some importance, as it bears the signatures of John 
Bagnall and Thomas Bagnall, the great ironmasters of 
West Bromwich, and of George Benjamin Thorney- 
croft. the ironmaster of Wolverhampton, whose 
respective descendants are now classed with the 
county families of the kingdom. The appoint- 
ment was effected by deeds dated 4th and 5th 
April, 1836, made between Benjamin Leadbetter, 
of Dudley, gentleman ; Alexander Gordon, late of 
Dudley, but then of the Straits in the parish of 
Sedgley, wine and spirit merchant ; Joseph Stinson, 
late of Dadley, grocer, but then of Ravensitch in the 
parish of Oldswinford, potter; Thomas Lester, of 
Dudley, pork merchant; Timothy Tilley, of Dudley, 
currier; William Shedden, of Dudley, gentleman; 
George Neath, of Dudley, miner; Luke Jewkes, of 
Dudley, gentleman, and William Izod, of Dudley, 
tailor, of the first part ; Joseph Timmins, of Dudley, 
fire-iron maker ; George England, of Dudley, maltster ; 
Geo. Bailey, the elder, of Dudley, dealer in provisions, 
of the second part, and John Bagnall, of the parish of 
West Bromwich, ironmaster; Thomas Bagnall of Golds 
Hill, West Bromwich, ironmaster; George Benjamin 
Thorneycroft, of Wolverhampton, ironmaster ; James 
Hartley, of Smethwick, glass manufacturer ; John 
Hartley, of Smethwick, plate glass manufacturer ; 
John Bytheway, the elder, of Dudley, cordwainer ; 
George Bailey, the younger, of Dadley, maltster ; 
Boaz Bloomer, of Holly Hall, Dudley, nail iron- 
monger; Thomas Morris, of Tipton, coal master, 
Isaiah Dixon, of Tipton, plumber and glazier; 
Thomas Cox, of Tipton, builder; Samuel Round, of 
Tipton, maltster; and Thomas Davies, of Golds Hill, 
West Bromwich, timber merchant, of the third part. 

These were the trustees of this chapel when the 
Act for the civil registration of births, marriages and 
deaths came into operation in 1837. 

New appointments of trustees were again made in 
1847, 1864, 1885 and 1894. 

The Dudley Circuit, which is now in the Birming- 
ham and Shrewsbury district, was called the Wolver- 
hampton Circuit to 1793. Wolverhampton was in the 
Dudley Circuit from 1794 to 1803. In 1804 Wolver- 
hampton was separated from the Dudley Circuit. In 
1828 the Stourbridge Circuit, and in 1859 the Oldbury 
and Tipton Circuits were formed out of the Dudley 
Circuit.

THE BAPTIST CHAPEL, 



NEW STREET, DUDLEY. 




Introduction. 

N the return of the Registrar-General the 
date of the foundation of this denomiua- 
tion is given as 1766. Its register book 
of births and deaths was lodged with the 
Registration Commissioners during the 
ministry of the Rev. William Rogers, 
the present reference being No. 12 
of the Worcestershire Registers. The 
volume contains 155 entries (128 births and 27 deaths), 
and is bound in brown leather, and measures 13 inches 
by 8 inches. Although the register is described as 
containing entries of births 1816 to 1837, and deaths 
1814 to 1837, it appears the actual registration of 
births did not commence until 2nd September, 1824, 
on which day several entries were made. 

The chapel is at the corner of New Street and 
Tower Street, and was first erected in 1778. New side 
galleries were erected in the chapel in 1828, and the 
place was then first lighted with gas. The chapel 
was considerably enlarged in 1838 at the cost of .£700, 
and in 1880 further improvements and alterations 
were made. The early documents of this place are 
missing, hence its early history is lost. The trustees 
would be grateful for information as to these docu- 
ments, and be pleased to have them restored. 
Persons professing the tenets of the Baptists were 
resident in Dudley long before the date given as the 
foundation of the denomination. There are entries 
in the Parish Registers of Dudley that Mary Parsons, 
described as an Anabaptist, was baptized in the 
Church of St. Thomas on 29th December, 1730, and 
that Sarah Finch, also described as an Anabaptist, 
was baptized in the same church on 26th May, 1732. 

The chapel minute book (still in use) was commenced 
in June, 1809, and records the events of the congrega- 



tion from that time to the present. The cause prior 
to 1809, it would seem, suffered many vicissitudes, but 
in that year was resusoitated, as appears by the first 
entry in its minute book, which is well worth record- 
ing, not only as showing the names of the revivalists, 
but the good work which they undertook. 

June, 1809. 
We, whose names are hereunder written, being 
previously baptized upon a profession of faith in 
and love to Jesus Christ and maintaining the 
doctrines of three equal persons and co-eternal 
in the God-head, eternal and personal election, 
original sin, particular redemption, free justifica- 
tion by the righteousness of Christ, efficacious 
grace in regeneration, and the final perseverance 
of all true believers, being desirous to unite our- 
selves together as a Church of Jesus Christ, in 
order that we may enjoy the ordinances of Christ 
and strengthen each others hands in the things 
of God and religion. Do hereby in the name, 
fear, and as in the presence of the most high 
God, to whom we must shortly give an account, 
agree to unite together as a church of the Living 
God, in order that as the Lord shall assist we 
may watch over, instruct, reprove, and admonish 
one another iu the Lord, in all and every part of 
our conduct so behave ourselves as becometh the 
followers of our Lord, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Until the year 1813— with the exception of a few 
months in 1811, when Mr Thomas Weston was 
minister — the cause was without a pastor. The 
earnest letter of the deacons and members entreating 
the Rev. John Hutchings to become their pastor, 
deserves to be reproduced, and is here recorded. 

January 21, 1813. 
Rev. John Hutchings. 

Dear Sir, — For several years we have been in a 
very declining state in consequence of the 
peculiar situation in which we have been placed, 
having been like sheep without a shepherd; but 
notwithstanding all the trials and difficulties 
which we have experienced in our forlorn situa- 
tion we have still been enabled to keep together, 
and have constantly as well as earnestly besought 
the great Head of the Church that He would be 
pleased to send us a pastor that would feed us 
abundantly with the bread that never perisheth. 
After a lapse of time we represented our situation 
to Mr Thomas Smith, who very kindly offered to 
undertake for us and to make every enquiry re- 
lating thereto, according to the utmost of his 
ability, and it is through his means in the pro- 
vidence ot God that you have come amongst us 
for a few Sabbaths for the purpose of preaching 
the unsearchable riches of Christ, and we have 
no doubt that should you continue as our 
Pastor that the Lord would bless His 
word to our mutual edification and com- 
fort, and that His cause would flourish here 
again. It is with sentiment of joy that we hail 
the happy period. We, therefore, the deacons 
and members of this Church, do most earnestly 
intreat you to accept of this our invitation, pray- 
ing the Father of Msrcies that he will be pleased 
to grant that you may come in the fulness of the 
gospel of peace. We have only to add that it 
shall be our constant endeavour to render your 
situation as comfortable as possibly we can. 
Wishing that yoa may dayly experience more of 
the mind that was in Christ, and that your 
labours both in publick and in private may be 
abundantly blessed. We remain, dear sir, yours 
in the bonds of the gospel." 

{Signed by Deacons and Members.] 

On 24th March, 1813, Mr Hutchings and family 
removed to Dudley, and he undertook the pastoral care 
of the church, being on 30th September, 1813, publicly 
set apart over the Baptist Church at Dudley as their 
pastor. On this occasion the Rev. — Draper com- 
menced the service by reading and prayer, the Rev. 
J. Birt, of Plymouth, delivered the introductory 
address and asked the usual questions, the charge was 
made by the Rev. John Palmer, of Shrewsbury, from 
Rev. ii. chap., 10th verse, " Be thou faithful unto 
death and I will give thee the crown of life," the 
sermon to the people was preached by the Rev. 
Thomas Roberts, of Bristol, Heb., xiii. chap., 17th 
verse, " For they watch for souls." 

The cause prospered under the pastorate of Mr 
Hutchings, and in July, 1822, Mr Charles Hardcaatle 
was appointed assistant minister. Mr Hardcastle 
left Dudley in 1825, and removed to the Baptist 



Church in Waterford, Ireland. On 3rd March, 1826, 
Mr William Rogers, then at Monmouth, was invited 
to become assistant minister to Mr Hutchings and to 
succeed him in the pastoral office and on the 18th 
May, 1826, Mr Rogers and his family came to Dudley 
and on the following Sabbath commenced his labours. 
Mr Hutchings died 8th December, 1833, and was 
buried in the Meeting House. There is a tablet 
erected in the chapel with the following inscriptions: — 
"In memory of Mary, wife of John Hutchings, pastor 
of this church, who died 27th October, 1817, aged 68. 
Also John Hutchings, pastor of this church more 
than 20 years, during which time he recovered an 
endowment for the support of the minister for ever. 
He died December 8th, 1833, aged 77. A sinner saved 
by grace." On 9th January, 1834, the Rev William 
Rogers form^Vly accepted the pastoral office in suc- 
cession to Mr Hutchings, and held the same until 3rd 
May, 1858, when in consequence of his advanced 
years he resigned. There are two tablets in the 
chapel recording the deaths of Mr and Mrs Rogers 
with the following inscriptions :— " Sacred to the 
memory of Rachael, wife of William Rogers, minister 
of this place, who died 26th October, 1826, in the 36th 
year of her age." '• In memory of the Rev William 
Rogers, who for 32 years was pastor of this church, he 
died January 27th, 1867, aged 77." 

Mr Roger's successor was the Rev David Evans, 
who came from Newtown (Mont.) in October, 1858, 
and resigned in September, 1868, and removed to 
Newport (Mon). The Rev (?) Alfred Major held 
the pastoral office from March, 1869, to 1872. 
The Rev. George McMichael, B.A., who came 
from Bourtouon-the Water, undertook the pastorate 
in May, 1873, and in consequence of ill-health 
resigned in 1888. He died at Malvern 7th January, 
1899, aged 69. Mr McMichael was succeeded in the 
pastorate by the Rev James Young Jones, of Llanelly, 
who held that office from October, 1889, to July, 
1892, when he left Dudley to take charge of the 
church at Poutardulais. The present pastor, Rev 
Edward Milnes, commenced his ministry 1st January, 
1893. 

As before stated, the early documents of the chapel 
are missing, so that in 1841 a new Trust was created 
by Mr Thomas Ragland (who as its senior deacon 
had been in possession of the chapel since the year 
1826>, and the then minister, the Rev William 
Rogers. This was effeoted by a deed dated 
the 10th April, 1841, and made between Thomas 
Ragland, of Dudley, cordwainer, of the first part ; the 
Rev William Rogers, of Dudley, Dissenting minister, 
of the second part ; and Humphrey Mitton, white- 
smith ; George Corbett, gentleman; Edward Moss 
Mitton, whitesmith ; John Westwood, accountant ; 
Joseph Knight. engineer ; Joseph Windsor, 
the younger, coach spring maker ; and 
Joseph Brookes, builder, all of Dudley ; 
Ebenezer Rogers, of Newport (Mon.), chemist ; Wil- 
liam Morgan, gentleman ; Alfred Lawden, goldsmith ; 
Caleb Lawden, gun manufacturer; William Middle- 
more, sadler ; John Carter, machinist ; James Black- 
burn, banker's clerk ; and William Jenkins, iron 
merchant and alderman, all of Birmingham, of the 
fifth part, whereby the piece of laud situate at the 
corner of the New Street and Tower Street in Dudley

with the chapel or meeting house and erections there- 
on, became vested in the parties to the same deed as 
trustees at all times thereafter, to permit the chapel 
to be used as a place of public religious worship and 
instruction, and for services and institutions con- 
nected therewith by the Society or Church of Par- 
ticular or Calvanistic Baptists at Dadley holding the 
doctrines as then commonly acknowledged by that 
denomination of Protestant Dissenters, and by such 
persons as should thereafter be united to the said 
church and attend divine worship in the said meeting 
house and to permit the vestry rooms and other erec- 
tions to be used with and be appendant to the said 
meeting-house. This trust deed was inrolled in the 
Court of Chancery on 22nd September, 1841. 

In 1888 two only of these trustees were living, 
therefore on 31st January, 1888, the following 
trustees were nominated in renewal of the chapel 



trust, under .the provisions of Sir Samuel Morton 
Peto's Act: — 

William Morgan and Edward Moss Mitton, 
both of Birmingham, as old continuing trustees, 
and Isaac Bradley, Henry Ogden Adams, Thomas 
Adams, Edward Moss Mitton, the younger, all of 
Birmingham ; Albert Joseph Allbut, of Worcester ; 
William Rogers, of Birmingham ; Joseph Skemp, 
of Bilston ; Walter Blackburn, of Wednesbury; 
Albert Edward Greenway, of Coseley ; G. 
Garratt, of ; John Granger Smith, of 

Coseley ; Charles Henry Palethorpe, Joshua 
Davies, Ebenezer Hutchings, the younger, and 
Walter Palethorpe, all of Dudley. 

In many instances the name of the parent or 
maiden surname of the mother of the person 
registered is given in brackets in the register.

WESLEY CHAPEL (METHODIST NEW CONNEXION), 

WOLVKRHAMPTON STREET, DUDLEY. 




Introduction. 

HE volume from which these entries 
are taken is, with other non-parochial 
registers, in the custody of the Registrar- 
General at Somerset House, London, 
the reference number being 15 of the 
Worcestershire registers. It is a thin 
book with marbled cardboard sides and 
red leather back and corners, and mea- 
sures 8^in. by 10£iu. It was evidently 
kept by the sexton for the time being, ia much dirtied 
and thumbed, and in very many instances the entries 
are either illiterate or most difficult to decipher, 
especially in the cases of infants. The entries consist 
solely of about 723 burials from 1829 to 1837. The 
date of the foundation of the denomination is given 
as 1829. 

This commodious place of worship, situate in 
Wolverhampton Street, standing well back from the 
street, with a spacious burial ground is known as 
Wesley Chapel. It was erected in the years 
1828 and 1829 by the Wesleyan Methodists at a cost of 
£4,100, viz.. cost of land £1,000, and cost of building 
£3,100. The sum of £850 was raised and paid 
by them, leaving the sum of £3,250 owing on account 
of the chapel. The first stone of the chapel was laid 
on the 10th June, 1828, by Rev Robert Newton, and 
the opening services were conducted by Rev 
Jabez Bunting on 16th August, 1829. In 1835 the 
chapel (subject to the last-mentioned debt) was trans- 
ferred to the Methodist New Connexion body, and in 
1844 it was legally conveyed according to the Model 
deed to trustees for the purposes of that cause, when 
JE400 was given by the Conference on condition that 
the congregation raised the further sum of £600, 



which was accomplished, thereby reducing the debt 
to £2,250. This debt in the year 1863 stood at £2,000. 
In 1866 the chapel was considerably enlarged and 
beautified at the expense of more than £2,000. 

In 1887 there was formed a new Trust of the joint 
properties of the chapel and school. In 1898 the 
only liability on the estate was £250, and means were 
then taken to clear off that debt and raise funds to 
renovate the chapel.
