Methodism in North Devon

by

John Gould Hayman

London: Wesleyan Conference Office, 2 Castle Street, City Road (1871) xi, 192 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

Nonconformity has a particularly strong tradition in the south west of England, and there is a wealth of published material available. The Methodists, like the Puritans before them, began as a revivalist movement within the Established Church, influenced by the evangelical preaching of John Wesley from the 1730s onwards. They were labelled 'violent enthusiasts' and increasingly refused access to their own parish churches. After the death of Wesley, who had opposed secession, in 1791, Methodism broke with the Church of England and split into several doctrinal groups, divisions that in many cases persisted until a general union in 1932. Most branches adopted the tightly organised system of centralised administration favoured by the Wesleyans, and this generated a large quantity of records. Individual societies were grouped into circuits, and the majority of records held at local level relate to individual circuits and their chapels. The most significant branch of Methodism in North Devon was the Bible Christian movement, founded in Shebbear in 1815. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy in the Bodleian Library collection and can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
