The Sandemanians

The Sandemanians were a small protestant denomination that began in Scotland and spread across England and to America. The wikipedia page has many details, including details of notable members, such as Michael Faraday.

The London meeting house had a small number of families who were members for several generations, and they also often married within the church. This list is the male members of the church from 1821 until 1867, although there are dates either side of this range. The list was re-typed from a pdf downloaded from Springer Publishing containing the extracts of the book Michael Faraday: Sandemanian and Scientist by Prof. Geoffrey Cantor. See below for other more useful membership lists

The aim is to replace the names in the list with the relevant wikitree ID's, and to identify the Sandemanian membership.

The data

The data covers the names of the male members, whether they were ever Deacons or Elders in the Church, the year of birth, year admitted into the church and year left (d=died). This is followed by profession and details of wives, based on research by Cantor. Much of this detail will be sufficient to confirm a match to the individuals concerned. It is also helped by the fact that the church was originally in the City of London, and then moved north to Highbury, Islington,North London. Many of the members lived close by, as can be seen by census details.

This data was compiled from various sources and can not be considered as a primary source. The Trade identified is based on research by Prof Cantor and is not in the original records.
