Methodist Lay Preacher and Bailiff
My husbands family on the Eustace side came from Drayton in Oxfordshire. My late mother in law May Corke used to talk of Pappi Eustace – who was a lay preacher in the nearby Methodist Church – he was quite a stern preacher and asked for her (aged 4) to be removed as too noisy for the service. It is interesting that he was a Bailiff on the big estate .
Would love to know if there is a register of lay preachers around 1890
