MORLEY: Morley-Zion Chapel Congregational Church History up to 1868.


In the end of the last century, under the ministry of the Rev. T. Clough at the preceding chapel, a division of the congregation took place, and some members, disaffected to Mr. Clough's ministry, withdrew and formed another congregation at Churwell. A chapel was built here in 1804, called "Daffield Chapel." The pastors have been-
  • 1804. Rev. N. DICKENSON. He was never ordained, but was very acceptable and useful. He died 1846, æt. 73.
  • The pulpit was occupied for some years by occasional preachers.
  • In 1850 the congregation removed to Morley.
  • 1857. Rey. RICHARD HARRIS (Hoxton Acy.), from Westbury. Mr. Harris left for Leeds, 1860.
  • 1862. Rev. D. W. ROE (from Gainsborough). Mr. Roe removed 1867.
  • The pulpit is now vacant.
