The Old Dissenting Chapel,
Oldbury,
1715-1745, 1759-1813.

The Old Dissenting Chapel, Oldbury.

NOTES ON THE CHAPEL AND MINISTERS.

CONGREGATION AND BUILDINGS.

The Oldbury to which these extracts relate is situate in Hales Owen. During the period to which these Registers relate it formed part of Shropshire, but by an Order (?) in Council in 18- it was declared to belong to Worcestershire, to which it is now annexed for all civil and (?) religious purposes.

The congregation was originally connected with an earlier building in Oldbury, which was superseded by the present Parish Church in 1841. This building, called Oldbury Chapel, appears to have been in the hands of the Presbyterians before the Act of Uniformity [1662]. and for many years they were left in undisturbed possession. It was built by subscription in 1529, and licensed - but not consecrated - by Jerome de Ghinuciis, Bishop of Worcester, an Italian, who was afterwards deprived of his See by Act of Parliament for non-residence. This Chapel, with certain adjoining properties - still in the possession of the School Trustees - was surrendered in the Court of the lord of the manor in 1659, and this is the beginning of its written history. Subsequent surrenders took place at each renewal of the body of Trustees. Dr. Nash, the historian of Worcestershire. says of Bishop Lloyd, one of the seven bishops committed by James II, and who held the See from 1699 to 1717, that he ousted the dissenters from this Chapel, and, notwithstanding the pretence of its standing on copyhold ground, consecrated both Chapel and Cemetery. The present meeting-house was, therefore, a substitute for the Chapel from which the congregation had been ejected. The building was erected on land given in 1708 by John Turton, of the Brades. In 1715, the Tory mob, which had set on fire the Old Meeting, Birmingham, and destroyed the chapel at West Bromwich, came to Oldbury, and set fire to the building while the minister was preaching. The amount of damage done is now unknown. In 1806, the Rev. William Procter was instrumental in getting the meeting-house rebuilt at a cost of about 300. The congregation must have been very small, as those resident in Oldbury only contributed 13. One of the subscribers is still represented by three generations in the present congregation.

iv OLDBURY OLD DISSENTING CHAPEL REGISTERS.

In 1862, the building was remodelled and refitted at a cost of 300; and, in 1889, further alterations were effected at a cost of 200. The walls are, however, chiefly the walls of 1806, and a small portion of the original fabric of 1708 still remains. The lectern and communion table are made of oak, which formed part of the pews of the first building; and the pulpit is the same that was used in the second.

The Registers.

The first is a thin volume, 13 in. tall by 4 1/2 in., 11 1/3 pages. closely written on both sides, and enclosed in a worn brown paper cover. The writing is much faded. At the head of p. 1 is written:- Children Baptized by Jn. Peach in and about Oldbury. The first entry is William s. Wm. Downing, b. 13 Nov. 1715.- Parks. The next, Feb. ye 10th, 1715-6, Hannah d. Daniel and Joan Feln. There are 30 entries in the same handwriting as the heading, the last being, 1717, Thomas s. Edward Hollidge, of Tividale, and A [worn away] his wife, b. Feb. ye [gone] Baptized ye 17th. From 7 April 1717 to the last of the 229 in the register on 29 December 1745, the entries are in different handwritings. On the last page are these somewhat indistinct entries, of the nature of memoranda:-

October ye 4, 1722, Then paide to Mr. nock towards
his poores leavey, 12 pounds and ten shillings 12 10 0
October ye 23. paid Mr. Nock towards his leavey 2 10 0

The surname of Nock frequently occurs in the entries.

Register No. II is a book of 32 pp., 8 of which are closely written on both sides and 24 blank, 8 in. tall by 5 1/2 in., in a limp marbled paper cover. The heading of p. 1 is A Register of the children Baptized at Oldbury meeting in ye Parish of Hales Owen, in ye County of Salop. The first entry is Benjamin s. Jos. and Mary White, bap. 20 Jan. 1771; the last of the 103 in the book, Sarah d. Joseph and Phebe Thompson, born 29 Aug. 1813, baptized in Rowley Church.

In sending them to the Registration Commissioners, the Rev. Timothy Davis, writing from Oldbury, 6 May 1837, says:- A Register has been lost, but it is so long since that I have not been able to ascertain the particulars, nor the time over which the register extended, only

that it occurred between 1715 and 1776. There were two such registers in the hands of a person whose father had been Clerk to the Chapel, and the difficulty we met with in recovering these has, in a measure, caused the delay.

Is it not yet possible by diligent search in and around Oldbury to recover this missing register ?
