GODDARD - Methodist Baptisms and Chapels

GODDARD - Methodist Baptisms and Chapels

I am trying to ascertain what Methodist chapels were in the Wenhaston, Suffolk area prior to the construction of the Wangford Chapel so that I can look for pre 1850 records.

Why an I doing this? . . . because there appears is a lack of “regular” C of E baptismal entries for the known children of James Norman and Ann Goddard - so perhaps they were non-conformist.

In the 1851 Census the family (with circa birth years) appeared as follows:
James Goddard Head 1816
Ann Wife 1821
Isabella 1832
Charles 1836
Isaac 1838
Sarah 1841
Elizabeth Ann 1843
Emma 1847
Susannah 1849

It is very probable that the following were also their children but not listed as being with them:
John 1827
Jemima 1828

I will be really impressed if I get a response to this inquiry - but thanks for considering it.
