of the most exemplary and useful members of the Society and acted
aa s pioneer in the district. He was an associate of Nelson of Birstall,
and for 60 years a faithful member of the Methodist Society. On
Sep. 14th 1747 he married Deborah North, of Little Horton, a fitting
companion, and John Nelson and his wife were present at the wedding.
He was a cheerful man, sparing in his diet, and he enjoyed good health
for nearly 80 years. In dress he was plain, never failing to wear a blue
coat and waistcoat, and refusing to put on mourning for anyone. He
hated parade or ftiss of any kind. On one occasion when he had
business in London, rather than allow his wife to make great prepara-
tion for the journey he left her in ignorance as to his destination and
walked all the way there and back, 400 miles, before retmming to his
wondering family.

As the head of a numerous family, it was his constant endeavour
to lead them to God. Twice every day his household was called
together to hear the reading of God's word and to unite in praise and

In 1790 he removed to Wansford near Bridlington, where to the
close of life, his zeal for God, and his endeavours to do good were
imabated. The day before his death, he walked several miles to a
service, and appeared unusually animated, and on retiring to rest,
calmly fell asleep in God.

1870 New district formed and constituted a Vicarage.

1873 Feb. 15th Church destroyed by fire.

1876 Mar. 13 New Church dedicated by Bishop of Ripon.

The first Church erected about the year 1777 was not consecrated
until 1787. It was a rather ugly stone building to which additions
and improvements were made in 1872. A disastrous fire destroyed
it in 1873, and after this the present handsome structure was built.
The Bishop of Ripon consecrated it in 1876.

The Rev. A. G. Kinsman, a very worthy man, was Incumbent
for 48 years, and his successor the Rev. C. H. Gibson served for 18
years. The remaining Vicars have only served for comparatively short

In the Old Church there was a memorial tablet recording the
virtues of a Mr. Sharp, but the tablet was destroyed by the fire and has
not been renewed.

There are tablets in the present Church in memory of members
of the Stephenson family ; a family numerous, influential and wealthy,
once resident in the village ; to the Rev. Hugh A, Claxton, a former
Vicar, to the Rev. A. G. Kinsman, and others.

On the floor of the South porch there are two tombstones of

members of the Stephenson family, two of the inscriptions reading as
under : —

" In memory of Matthew Stephenson of Gildersome who
departed this life on the 20th day of August 1845 aged 70 years."

United Methodist Church, Mount Zion, Gildersome.

Mount Zion was formed by persons who seceded or were expelled
from the Wesleyan body, and had for their place of Worship the old
School in the Bottoms. In 1863 (May 29th) land was bought from
Lord Cardigan at Harthill for the purpose of building the present
Chapel. Adjoining this land were two small cottages with garden —
the total area being 156 yards, belonging to the Township. To get
consent for the sale a Town's Meeting was called on December 24th,
1863. It was held in the old Town's School, under the Chairmanship
of John Ellis. The Notice calling the meeting was signed by the Rev.
A. G. Kinsman (Minister) Thomas Bedford (Churchwarden) Thomas
Clough and Jeremiah Smith (Overseers).

Plans for the Chapel were prepared gratuitously by Mr. Chas.
Sands of Birstall, and die work carried out at a cost of £1,200. The
members of the Congregation did all the excavating during the evenings
and on Saturdays. The Chapel was opened on April 12th 1865.
Sermons were preached by Rev. J. H. Carr (Birstall) and Rev. J.
Guttridge (Sheffield). A Pubhc Meeting was held, over which J.
Feamside, Esq., of Bradford, presided, the principal speaker being Rev.
J. Haslam. The sum oi £$io 14s. iid. was raised by subscriptions
and collections at the opening services.

The first Trustees were Messrs. Samuel Hall, James Holliday,


Albert Sowden, William Dixon, Robert Brooke, William Lister,
Samuel Cawthome, George Dixon, Edward Marshall and Joseph

Gildersome was in the Birstall Circuit until 1898 when the Morley
and Gildersome Circuit was formed.

In 1889, the old School being too small, land was purchased from
Lady Cardigan, adjoining the Chapel in order to build a new School.
Plans were drawn by Mr. S. S. Holdsworth of Gildersome in 1892.
The Foundation Stones were laid by Mr. Henry Booth (Gildersome),
Mr. Wilson Topham (Tong), Mrs. Alfred Page (Armley) and by Mr.
Holbert Marshall on behalf of the Scholars. The School which cost
^2,200 was opened in November 1893 by Mr. Wilham Mart (Leeds).

The devotion and self sacrifice of the people worshipping here
cannot be too highly commended.
