Hi Folks,

The link to "The beginnings of Quakerism in Devon and Cornwall" (https://swquakers.org.uk/content/history-beginnings) is dead. Apparently, the domain is available for sale.

Thanks, I have added a warning note, also mentioning that Devon Quakers now have a skeleton page for history of Devon Quakers, which has no content and is still being created - it is possible some or all of the content will be transferred. The page here can be further updated when we see what the Devon Quakers website makes available.
