I cannot see a Primitive Methodist chapel in Eastham to follow on from the preaching places.  Was a chapel ever built?

Comments about this page

  • According to the 1857 Post Office Directory for the Parish of Eastham, page 113:
    ‘Eastham is a township, parish, and village … [It] contains the townships of Eastham, Hooton, Nether and Over Pool, Great and Little Sutton, Childer-Thornton and part of Whitby [which included Ellesmere Port].’
    Under Ellesmere Port: ‘The Primitive Methodists have a meeting place here.’ Both of the respondents for the 1851 Returns above lived in Ellesmere Port so one of the Returns may well refer to this meeting place. Ellesmere Port went on to become a stronghold of Primitive Methodism (see ‘Primitive Methodism in Ellesmere Port’ on this website).
