Rev John Anderson (1797-1866) with his wife Elizabeth

Background to the Congregationalist or Independent Churches :- (1)

This nonconformist denomination began as a movement within the Church of England, founded by Robert Browne. Its followers were at first called Separatists or Brownists, but were later known as Independents, and later still as Congregationalists. They were firmly suppressed, and in 1608 Browne's followers emigrated for a time to Amsterdam to escape persecution. But some returned, and in 1620 the church provided the London contingent of the passengers of the Mayflower when she sailed for America.

During the Commonwealth, Cromwell and several of his closest associates were Independents, though the official doctrine of the established church was then Presbyterian. When the monarchy was restored, the 1662 Act of Uniformity placed legal disabilities upon the sect, as it did upon other nonconformists. Although persecution was ended under William & Mary, by the 1689 Act of Toleration, meeting places were still subject to the granting of licences by either the county justices, the bishop or the archdeacon.
Background to the Independent Church in Dorchester :-

The first Independent church or chapel in Dorchester was founded in 1662 by the Revd William Benn, the Anglican minister at Holy Trinity, Dorchester, who had been ejected from his benefice. The church adopted Presbyterian doctrines. It met at The Priory, the home of Denzil Holles (1598-1679), and continued to do so after his death in 1680. In 1719 a meeting house was built in Pease Lane [Colliton Street]. (2) I have also provided this link to an account of The Old Dissenters Meeting House Pease Lane and their Register of Baptisms from 1750-1835.

In 1776 a group split away from the Presbyterian church to form a Huntingdon Connection Methodist church, in Durngate Street, under the leadership of (1) Rev. Thomas Molland a graduate of Trevecca College which was founded by Lady Huntington on her birthday (the 24th Aug 1768) to train her Ministers. After 3 years at the college he went to Upwey but did not settle moving to Dorchester in 1776.

John Hutchins (3) informs us that the old meeting-house of the Independents or Congregationalists in Dorchester stood in 'Durn Lane' and was erected in 1776. 'Durn Lane' also called 'Durngate Lane' (and later 'Durngate Street' ) can be seen on Hutchins map of 1771 and is identified in the index by the letter "E". As can be seen 'Durn' or 'Durgate Lane' runs parallel to High East Street in the Center of Dorchester not far from All Saints Church and connected 'Cornhill' to Fordington. On the 6th Nov 1797 (4) title to a messuage (used now and for many years past as a meeting house, with its garden, formerly part of Adminston burgage in the parish of All Saints, Dorchester) was conveyed to trustees. I think that it is important to appreciate that small sects like this drew together like thinking members and they would often travel much further than normal to attend chapel. Many were businessmen and likely to attend other Independent chapels to exchange views etc. As I live in Wales I do not have access to the original documents held at the Dorset History Center and these need to be studied in due course but the DHC index to the records lists the following people as being named in the conveyance - most probably as trustees as the meeting-house was being conveyed into their care. One of the conditions set down for the conveyance was that that the building should continue to be used as a meeting house by the Independent congregation of Dorchester. If the meeting house was not used, or a Minister not appointed for 12 months, then the trustees had the power to sell. Another interesting condition was that the trustees must continue to attend and subscribe to the meeting house.

    (3) Rev. Gibbons, (Minister 1793-1796) He was a Congregationalist and the church adopted this doctrine. The Charles Surman card index of Dissenting Ministers suggests that he was still there in 1796

    (4) Rev. Stephen Joseph Underwood (Minister 1796-1801) another graduate of Trevecca said to be from Middlesex.
      Note:- Stephen and his wife Mary are known to have had at least the following children (1) John who was born on 25th Oct 1788 in the parish of St Pancras, London, Middlesex (whilst they were living in Britannia Street, Bath Bridge) (2) James was born 8th Jan 1795 in the parish of St Martins in the Fields, London (whilst living in Orange Court Leicester Square) (3) Ebenezer who was baptised in Dorchester by his father on 21 Oct 1796 (4) Joseph who was born on 21st Oct 1796 in the parish of All Saints Dorchester (5) Maria Jane Willmot who was born on 6th Aug 1798 in All Saints Parish Dorchester and baptised by her father the same day.

    (6) Rev. Lemon Hall (1788-1863) (Minister 1813-1826) He was born at Gatesend near Fakenham Norfolk on 20th Feb 1788. He married (See IGI) to Ann Lentaff the daughter of John & Mary Lentaff at St Nicholas Church in Lynn Norfolk on 16th July 1813, shortly before moving to Dorchester. We know of eleven children born to his wife Ann in Dorchester:- (1) John Lentaff Hall born on 6th June 1814 whilst they were living in Holy Trinity Parish probably still in temporary accommodation after their arrival. He was baptised in the independent church on 31st July that year. This child appears to have been buried at All Saints (as the independent church had no burial ground of it's own) aged 4 years on 1st Sep 1818 as John Lemon Hall. (2) Lydia Hall was born after they moved to All Saints parish to live on 24th Sep 1815. She was baptised in the independent church on 9th November that year. (3) Robert Lemon Hall according to the register at Dr Williams Library was born on 21st Aug 1816 (The IGI incorrectly records birth place as Cripplegate which is where the library is!) . This registration gives maternal grandparents. He married and moved to live in Newington Surrey (4) Henry Hall born 2nd Nov 1817 was baptised in the independent church on 12th July 1818 but buried aged 11 months at All Saints on 18th Sep 1818.

Lemon remarried in 1837 to Elizabeth the daughter of another nonconformist couple John and Ann Yockney who was born at Staines in Middlesex on 4th July 1793. Lemon remained at Stanwell until his death on 18th Jan 1863. Letters of Administration for his estate (under £450) were issued (with a will attached) to Samuel Hall of Eastbourne Sussex a Chemist one of his children.
    NOTE:- In 1822 during the tenure of the Rev Lemon HALL a group left the church to form a Huntingdon Connexion church which met in the Lady Huntingdon Room in Grey House Yard South Street Dorchester and in 1825 at Fordington . There are 66 names on the membership roll. Nineteen baptisms took place there and these have been added to the following register from Durngate but identified as a Huntingdon Connection baptism. In 1826, following the appointment of a new minister at the Durngate Street chapel, they re-joined the Congregational church.

INDEPENDANT CHAPEL:-

In 1857 a new church was built and stood near the lower end of South Street, on the east side, and was said to be a building of geometrical Gothic character, the front elevation or pulpit end of the chapel being in line with the street.

Note:- The following baptisms were originally taken in Nov 2010 from the IGI extraction file C074181 for "The Independent Church of Dorchester Durngate Street"; and film C074191 for the Huntingdon Connection Church; to allow cross referencing with other records on this site until a full transcription could be obtained which was completed in Aug 2013. Because it's a non conformist religion baptisms are often well after birth and where this is more than a year I have made a separate note in the index of the birth date to aid searching. It does not of course mean that they were in Dorchester at the date of birth only that it is recorded at baptism. In the original register baptisms are often not in date order but grouped by family but for ease of reference I have chosen to retain the original chronologcal order given in the IGI.
