Names on Petition
« on: Sunday 10 February 19 07:52 GMT (UK) »
Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help with the names found on a Petition (1830's). I have:

? Guthrie Curate of Woolwich
? ? Churchwarden of Woolwich
? Thomson Churchwarden of Woolwich

I believe they belong to a Presbyterian Church, but i dont know which one.

Cheers

I donít think Presbyterians had/have curates or churchwardens.  CofE much more likely.
L. Guthrie?

I think it may be Jn Thomson.  (i.e. an abbreviation of John)

Skoosh.

Would the third name be Gordon THOMSON?

Haven't tracked him down but the name does appear to be associated with Woolwich and vestry meetings,etc.
