1765 Letter from Rev. Samuel Philipps to Mr. Martin Kemp

< Return to previous search results

This letter reveals the acrimonious ending to Rev. Philipps’ ministry, which had spanned a total of 12 years of ministry, first in Hill Street and later in Lagland Street, Poole (1753 – 1765).

In the seventh year of his ministry (1760), he was ejected from the Great Presbyterian Meeting House, Hill Street, Poole, but he continued his ministry in the newly founded Congregational Chapel in Lagland Street, to which many members from Hill Street seceded with him.

Readers may be interested in the footnotes, which give more details about the circumstances surrounding the letter.
