transcribed by David Tonks

The Primitive Methodist chapel in Silverwell submitted a return to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship. Return no: 307 3 2 10. It stated that the chapel, erected in 1843, was a separate building, used exclusively for worship and a Sunday school.  It seated 208 with room for another 180 standing.  and the average Sunday attendance was 150 with a Sunday school of 20.

William Cooper, a class leader, completed the return.

“Primitive Methodism in Cornwall” by J C C Probert tells us that it was located in a field on Mount Pleasant Farm.  It closed in 1883
