FLOCKTON: Flockton-Zion Chapel Congregational Church History up to 1868.


About 1800, a few persons assembled here for prayer in the house of one of Mr. Toothill's members. A place was then licensed, and ministers were invited to preach. At length a chapel was built, which was opened 1802. A church was formed April 7, 1803. The following have been ministers :-
  • 1803. Rev. JOSEPH KIRBY. Removed to Lewes about 1809.
  • 1821. Rev. JOHN EDWARD
  • CULLEN, from Caistor. He remained three or four years.
  • 1825. Rev. JOSEPH EVANS. He continued for two years.
  • 1833. Rev. JOHN SOWERBY.
  • Messrs. Cockin, Ryan, Boothroyd, and Eccles took part in his ordination (Sept. I I). Mr. Sowerby was minister during nearly twenty years.
  • 1851. Rev. WILLIAM CATTON, from Malton. He remained four years. There is now no minister.
