NONCONFORMITY.

A group of dissenters registered Moreton Hill Farm for use as a meetingplace in 1741. In 1805 a house in the parish was registered for Independent worship, as was another in 1810. (fn. 70) In 1825, however, there was no dissenters' meeting-place in the parish. (fn. 71) In 1846 Quarter Sessions licensed a house in Epney for nonconformist worship. (fn. 72) A house built in 1840, where in 1851 a Wesleyan meeting had an evening congregation of 20, (fn. 73) may have been the same one. No later record of it has been found.
