Little Gonerby Primitive Methodist chapel

There’s a note in the Primitive Methodist magazine of 1886  about the laying of the foundation stones for a much needed chapel  at Little Gonerby in the Grantham station.

Little Gonerby itself is somewhat elusive, let alone the chapel. Historically it is linked to Manthorpe as Little Gonerby cum Manthorpe and then Manthorpe cum Little Gonerby. In practice it is the northern part of Grantham.

Where was the chapel and what happened to it?

    I looked up Little Gonerby Congregationalist Chapel because it is where Samuel Antliff D.D. married Judith Norris, my great, great-aunt in 1846 (I have their marriage cert). I thought it was interesting that they married in a Congregationalist Chapel. He is styled as “Dissenting Minister” under rank or profession on the certificate.

    Might of course be an entirely different place – I’m not knowledgeable enough to know whether there was a relationship between Primitive and Free Methodism at the time? Perhaps you know?
