Prees,
Whixall Independent Chapel.
1805-1823.

Whixall Independent Chapel.

Register of Baptisms.

The Register consists of three volumes.

Volume I., which measures 8 1/2 inches high and 7 inches broad, is a thick book bound in green cloth boards. It contains entries of Births and Baptisms from 1805 to 1823, but many entries are torn away and others illegible. It is in a bad state of repair, stained and soiled. The volume also contains, on 63 pages. texts of the Sermons preached from 13 October, 1805, to 10 September, 1815, Church Accounts, money collected at the Sacrament, cost of bread and wine, money given to the poor, Sunday School accounts (the teachers were paid sums varying from 2 2s. to 3 5s. a year), and Subscriptions for the preaching of the Gospel at Whixall.

Volume II. is a small book, measuring 9 1/4 by 8 3/8 inches, in boards, and contains Baptisms from 1823 to 1837, and is in good condition.

Volume III. is a small book, measuring 7 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. in boards, and is also in good condition and legibly written. It contains entries of Births and Baptisms from 1811 to 1837.

These Registers are No. 51 of the Shropshire Non-Parochial Registers preserved at Somerset House.

The Chapel was founded in 1790, but was presumably enlarged or rebuilt and opened on 13 October. 1805. The following is the entry about the opening:-

Texts preached at the New Chapel. 1805, October 13. My new Chapel was opened. Mr. Everal began the service with Reading. Mr. Edwards prayed. Mr. Ralphs, of Liverpool, preached from Isaiah 60th chapter, latter part of the 7th and 8th verse. " And I will glorify the House of my Glory. Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows."

In the afternoon Mr. Weaver preached from 1st Peter, 2nd chapter, 4th verse, " To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious."

In the evening a double lecture. Mr. Wilson preached from 2nd Isaiah, 3rd verse, " And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the House of the God of Jacob."

In the evening Mr. Ralph preached from Mathew the 2nd, 1st and 2nd, " Behold there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem, saving, Where is He that is born King of the Jews, and are come to worship Him."

The Texts are given to 3 September, 1815.
