PROTESTANT NONCONFORMITY

In 1705 the house of William Brock at Navestock was licensed for nonconformist worship. (fn. 70)

In 1816 a house at Navestock occupied by Charles Goodwin was similarly licensed. (fn. 71) In 1829 this congregation, numbering 30, was still meeting in a licensed room, under the leadership of William Temple, minister of the Congregational church at Stanford Rivers (q.v.). (fn. 72) No later trace has been found of this society. It seems probable, however, that there was a nonconformist chapel later in the 19th century, and that this was the building at Horseman Side now known as the Navestock Mission Room. This is a small rectangular building of gault brick with an entrance and porch, and is dated 1897. It is said to have been built as a nonconformist chapel but the services lapsed. The building is now in private ownership and is used as a Sunday school and chapel of ease to the parish church. (fn. 73)
