My Ancestors were ... English Presbyterians or Unitarians (Second Edition)

How can I find more out about them?

Family historians will be well aware that the parish registers of the Church of England are not the only available source for identifying the baptisms, marriages and burials of their forebears. In the late seventeenth century the Presbyterians were the largest of all the nonconformist groups, both in terms of numbers of members and chapels. By the early nineteenth century, they were the smallest. The family historian therefore faces a difficult problem, as so many Presbyterian chapels disappeared in the eighteenth century, leaving little trace, and their registers disappeared with them. However, this booklet lists the known records for Presbyterian Chapels in existence before 1850, with details of holdings by record offices and major libraries
