Scotter Primitive Methodists (1819)

During the spring and summer of this year, the two missionaries who had been sent to Gainsborough, as notified in our last chapter, extended their labours with great success. Mr Braithwaite opened Scotter and the adjacent villages. "The way opened wonderfully," says Mr Hollingswortb, “the country was on a move for miles around and many were converted to the Lord.”

From a copy of Scotter circuit plan for 1819, we find that Gainsborough, Epworth, Scotter, Kirton, West Ferry, East Ferry, Messingham, Willoughton, Blyton, Laughton, Wildsworth, Stockwith, Springthorpe, Northorpe, Corringham, Morton, Scotton, Butterwick, Burringham, Flixbro', Crosby, Hibaldstow, North Kelsey, South Kelsey, Waddingham, Bp. Norton, Haxey, and other places were regularly supplied with preaching.

Additional Information

This took place in the early days of the Primitive Methodists so there would not have been a chapel.
