Index of 1821-8 Primitive Methodist Magazine accounts of chapel openings, re-openings and foundation-stone laying

Indexed by Margaret Done

There are 35 accounts of chapel openings in the Primitive Methodist magazine from 1821 to 1828, with two dates for foundation stone laying.  There was no re-opening of a chapel after improvements.

The number of accounts in each year were:

  • 1821 - 8 
  • 1822 - 2
  • 1823 - 0
  • 1824 - 8
  • 1825 - 3
  • 1826 - 5
  • 1827 - 4 (with two dates of foundations stone laying)
  • 1828 - 5

In Pickering it was thought that 5,000 attended the opening.

In Newcastle upon Tyne they purchased a chapel from a Scotch church - ironic for Primitive Methodists.

At Selston in Derbyshire the Lord of the Manor refused a piece of land - but they found room in the garden of a member.

At King's Moor near Haverfordwest they ran out of money so had to stop work for a while until funds were replenished.
