Sutton Primitive Methodist chapel

Wisbech circuit - but which Sutton?

The 1834 Primitive Methodist magazine contains an account by William Hardwick of the opening of Sutton Primitive Methodist chapel.

Opening services took place on June 1st 1834. ¬†The chapel measured¬†18′(w) x 24′(l)

What brother Hardwick didn’t tell us is which Sutton this is – there are several possibilities. Can you help?

  • There was a Methodist Chapel in Sutton St. Edmund, used by Wesleyan etc. Closed I think in the early 60’s

  • When I grew up in this area, the place often referred to as just ‘Sutton’ was Long Sutton, so I would expect the unknown chapel was there. When I was child, there was no Methodist Church in Long Sutton, but the building on the main road, often pointed out to me as the former Methodist Chapel, was a garage. The Baptist and Congregational Churches in the town were very strong.

  • I can find five Suttons North of Wisbech straddling the Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire Border. Long Sutton, Sutton Bridge, Sutton St Edmund, Sutton St James and Sutton S Mary Parish. All have a PM Chapel recorded in and around them on your database and extensive research has revealed no new PM Chapels within the area of the Suttons so is this Sutton a reference to a Chapel you already have.
