||A new section devoted to Ramsor
, linking all available material relating to this remarkable place. Ramsor
had a special place in Primitive Methodist History, and was frequently
visited by Hugh Bourne, who conducted his first ever funeral service
(1810) there only 2 years after a Camp Meeting (1808).
This will take some time, even including only the material now available
on this site.
This is a prelude to writing a history of Primitive Methodism in the
Ramsor Circuit. If you have any original
material relating to Ramsor, especially extracts from Primitive Methodist
Magazines, and extract from Journals of Preachers, please let us know.
