NONCONFORMITY.

There was one Quaker in 1664, and in 1705 Thomas Bundock's house was licensed for Quaker meetings. (fn. 33) A few Quakers were reported in 1790 and two families in 1810, who presumably attended the Copford meeting. In 1810 some Independents attended a meeting in Layer Breton. (fn. 34) Primitive Methodists were recorded at Heckford Bridge in 1870-1. (fn. 35)
