Shipdham Independent Congregationalist

Baptisms 1833 to 1837

The Independent Congregation at Shipdham was founded, based in a cottage in the village, in 1833. This was one of many such Congregations formed in this area at similar times. Gradually they merged to a single unit based upon that founded at Watton. Record preservation for these chapels is poor. This small register survives because it was surrendered to The National Archives as part of the legislation surrounding the introduction of National Registration. A copy of this microfilm, MF1156, is held in the collection of the Norfolk Record Office and from which this transcript was prepared. The film is elderly but readable.
