This year we are celebrating 350 years of Almeley Wootton’s Quaker meeting house.
Each month during 2022 we will be adding content to this section of the website. We hope to build up an interesting and useful resource for Quakers, historians, and geneaologists.
For a 20 minute presentation outlining its history, the Prichard connection, why we think this is important, and how we plan to celebrate it, why not watch this 20 minute video clip?
This is the deed of transfer, in which Roger and Mary Prichard formally transferred ownership of the building to the Quaker ‘Particular Meeting’ (as they were then called). The building had been built a few years earlier, and used informally as a meeting house before formal transfer. The signatures of Roger Prichard and the mark of Mary, his wife, are on the bottom section of the document, each with a seal, adjacent (see below).
