About this Item: London: 1964., Dr. Williams's Trust, 1964. Softcover. 36 triple-column p.; 20 cm. (Dr. Williams's Library. Occasional papers ; 11) List of counties; indexes: places, persons. From the introduction: `The Evans List is a register of Dissenting congregations, their ministers, the number of "hearers" and of voters for parliament, etc., in these congregations. It was compiled for the most part in the years 1716, 1717 and the early part of 1718, but with additions down to about the year 1729. The chief reason for compiling the list at that date would seem to have been a desire to be provided with information as to the strength of the "Dissenting Interest" for the purpose of furthering the agitation for the repeal of the oppressive legislation against Dissenters, some of it passed at the end of Queen Anne's reign, and the rest of it inherited from an earlier day. The compilation was based upon a considerable correspondence set in motion by the "Committee of Three Denominations" (in full: "Committee of the General Body of Protestant Dissenting Ministers of the Three Denominations in and about the Cities of London and Westminster"). This body, dating from the beginning of Queen Anne's reign, was, at the time of the making of the List, composed of six representatives appointed from the Presbyterians, five from the Independents and five from the Baptists. Members of the Committee from each denomination (working, it would seem, to some extent independently of each other) collected information form chosen correspondents in the country. The List itself is in the handwriting of John Evans, minister of the Hand Alley Presbyterian congregation, London--hence the name "Evans List.".' The index of persons, p. 21-36 gives names and dates as fully as known. VG, stapled, in orig. yellow wrapper. Seller Inventory # 020535
