Chapels - Port Eynon

This project is fully described on Glamorgan Chapels Database

This Port Eynon database compiled by Gareth Hicks with contributions from;

  • Jeff Coleman

If a chapel is already mentioned on the main parish page then its name will act as a link to that section for any data recorded there - such as extant records and OS Grid references

Some chapels may have more than one entry if it is not possible to correctly identify each from a particular source

(For an explanation of the various non-conformist denominations see Wales - Genealogy Help Pages )

Sources referred to (indicated by number shown in brackets after the data entry) where there may be more data available

Sources;

Wesleyan chapel, Port Eynon

  • There is a Wesleyan chapel                   1895  (1)                and   1910  (2)
  • In Port Eynon a former poorhouse (according to source) was fitted out in 1852 by Captain Bevan as a Methodist Chapel   (JC 3)

A brief excerpt from the Gower Methodists site
"in 1764 Wesley came to Oxwich, where he preached twice before moving on. Among the converts he left behind was a young village girl, Margaret Harris. On the 6th of March 1769, Margaret married William Tucker of Horton. William, baptised in Port Eynon 28 December 1739, was the son of William and Anne Tucker."

This chapel no longer exists as a chapel, the OS grid reference from the NLW's Nonconformist Chapels book is SS46778540 which hits a spot just behind  St Catwg's church in the village

 

Other (inc un-identified)
