Calvary (Baptist) Chapel,
Brynmawr, Wales
Miscellaneous Entries 1837-1842

as transcribed by Judith A. Sylte

  • This information was transcribed by me 27 June 2004 from digital images I took at Calvary (Baptist) Chapel, Brynmawr 21 May 2004.
  • This page of the church books contains the earliest events I found. Unlike later pages, it mixes baptisms, restorations, and persons received into the church by letter.
  • The original document is not formatted in columns. I have done it here for clarity.
  • Note that many lines contain reference to more than one person.
  • Words followed by (?) are not fully legible in my digital image and should be re-checked.
  • Some spellings are phonetic and nonstandard - e.g., Henreater = Henrietta, Luesea = Louisa, Gorge = George, etc.
  • Roman numerals indicate columns in a 2-page spread.
  • All information should be verified from the original or a cleaner digital image as soon as possible.
