Flint, Mary

Little is know on Mary’s ministry except that she preached an anniversary sermon at Butler’s Bank Chapel in the summer of 1844. As the chapel had been far too small to hold the congregation, anniversary services were held in a field.


I have not been able to identify Mary in online records. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • A Mary Flint, aged 23, was living at Sunny Bank, Cladock, Herefordshire on Census day 6th June 1841. According to the 1826 plan of the Cwm Circuit on the My Primitive Methodists site, Cladock was a chapel in that Circuit. She was not born in the County (Herefordshire)
    A Mary Flint was married in the first quarter of 1845 in Wem Registration District. As Wem was in the Prees Circuit, this may be our woman. Further investigation suggests she married John Lewis (b abt1810).
    In the 1851 Census for Wem, a John Lewis (41) is an innkeeper, and married to Mary Lewis (30). There is no further trace of this couple.
    I have not been able to find them in later census records.
