There are two non-Conformist sets of records that you should also check
(if you haven't already looked at them):
1. Isleham Independent Church (1695-1805). This church switched to the
Baptist faith c.1805. The records have been published in an excellent
book published by the "Cambridgeshire Records Society", The Church Book
of the Independent Church (now Pound Lane Baptist), Isleham, 1693-1805.
Edited by Kenneth A.C. Parsons, ISBN 0 904323 06 4. You can buy the book
through GenFair or it should be available in major genealogical
libraries (e.g. Birmingham Central Library - there's a story about
this). I can't help you now because my copy is on loan to the Suffolk FHS.
2. Soham Baptist Church (c.1700 onwards). Beware, there were 2.5 Baptist
churches in Soham during the late 1700's:
- The original (oldest) one, to which this comment relates.
- Some records/baptisms appear in the records of the Isleham church.
- There was another (much later) chapel about which I know nothing.
The records for the original Soham Baptist church are held at a library
which is not open to the public, and which does not have the resources
to reply to genealogical enquiries. I'm trying to arrange for the
records which relate to family history to be filmed and copies given to
the relevant Record Offices. This will cost rather a lot of money and
take some time (I'm interested in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Kent,
London/Middlesex and Suffolk, so these are the counties on the list).
The following e-mail from me about wills may be of interest too.
