Thanks for the info - I have contacted the Manchester University a couple of times and have not had a great response - I live in Australia so accesssing resources is not possible in person for me. I will ask at my university if there are ways to share resources. I will also try Shebbear College. Your work in your thesis was excellent - so detailed. I am currenlty undertaking my Doctorate so know the time it takes.
I am seeking information regarding the Bible Christian movement in the 1840-1850's in Devon. I have come across the Bible Christian Magazines which were published regularly and have been able to access some as ebooks. Where are the originals kept? Are these able to be viewed? Also do you know if records were kept regarding the itinerant ministers in this period? My great grandfather was a minister of this religion and I am finding it difficult to trace his movements during this time - I have a marriage record but he does not appear in census records. Thanks
