Society Projects

 

In 2018, members of the Society researched the history of the four nonconformist Chapels in the parish - Thorn Moor (Baptist), Rexon Cross (Bible Christian / Methodist), Downicary (Wesleyan / Methodist) and Grinacombe (Bible Christian / Methodist).  The results can be viewed on the BWW Chapels pages.

 

In 2019, David Willey did an in-depth study of field names, based on the Tithe Redemption Map.  His presentation on this was on 16th December 2019 and a written account will be added to the website soon.

 

David Tovey did research on BWW Mills and Millers and BWW Blacksmiths - see pages on website.

 

in 2020, it is proposed to do research based on the records of St Nicholas Church.

 

These include:-

 

1.  Parish Record Book starting 1887

 

2. Record of Marriages 1698-1912

 

3. Record of Baptisms 1698-1979

 

4. Record of Burials - 1698-1913

 

In many cases, these have been transcribed by hand in recent years and so are very readable.
