We know of five meeting houses established in Barton Stacey parish, the first in 1813, the last in 1835. These are shown below.

Only the first specifies the denomination as Baptist, though the names suggest that the following three were the same. The 1834 certificate is probably for a Methodist Meeting House since the Anthony family were Methodists.

We are unable to say whether the 1835 certificate was for a Baptist or Methodist meeting house in Newton Stacey.

If you can provide information about Baptists in the area, or know more about the people who signed these documents, please get in touch. Contact us

This is to certify that the dwelling house in the occupation of Betsy North, in the parish of Barton Stacey in the County of Southampton and diocese of Winchester is set apart by a congregation of protestant dissenters for the worship of almighty God witness our hands this 10th day of April 1824.
