West Hartlepool Knowles Street Primitive Methodist preaching place

Return from West Hartlepool Primitive Methodist preaching place in the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship
Provided by David Tonks

David Tonks tells us that:

“As Patterson makes clear in his Northern Primitive Methodism (1909) p. 51, ‘Stranton was a tiny village in the near neighbourhood of Hartlepool when the vicinity was first missioned by the Primitive Methodists.  It is now swallowed up by the new town’ [i.e. West Hartlepool].”

The 1851 Census Return was signed by Samuel Russell, Leader, a 34 year old Master Joiner, who employed ten men and lived in Pilot Street in Stranton with his wife Ann, three sons, three daughters, a servant and two joiners who were lodgers.
