Westbury,
Minsterley Independent Chapel.
1806-1837.

Westbury Minsterley Independent Chapel.

Register of Births and Baptisms.

This is a large thin volume, with printed headings, 16 1/2 inches tall and 10 1/2 inches broad, and extends from 1806 to 1837. It is No. 46 of the Shropshire Non-Parochial Registers, preserved at Somerset House. The Ministers who sign are George Ryder 1806 to 1815, John Jones Beynon 1817 to 1825, Thomas James 1825 to 1832, and Thomas Jones 1833 to 1837. There is a column for the signatures of parents, but few of these are filled in, and up to 1829 they are generally signed with a mark. The Chapel was founded in 1795.

REGISTER OF THE INDEPENDENT CHAPEL, MINSTERLEY.
PAR. WESTBURY, CO. SALOP.

BIRTHS AND BAPTISMS.

The following list was accurately transcribed from the old Register of Baptisms belonging to the Independent denomination of Protestant Dissenters, meeting at Minsterley, in the parish of Westbury, in the County of Salop. All the Children whose names are underneath were regularly and properly baptized (by different Ministers regularly and properly ordained) after the manner of Congregational Dissenters.

I, Thos. James, the Minister of Minsterley pro tempore, do this day, namely 11th of Sept., 1825, pledge myself to the correctiveness of this transcript.

Copied by myself in the above day.
