     The compilers of the information below that was published in The Baptist Magazine of 1835, sent forms to Baptist ministers throughout nearly all of England. The chart from which this information was taken included also: the present minister's name and his time of service; the number of members of the church at that time, the average number of hearers, the size of the town or village, along with a few other items. This chart records church names and the reported year of formation. Some did not report at all and others did not report all of the information requested. A link to the Google Book document is at the bottom of the chart. Jim Duvall
