For reasons that are unclear, the marriages we have details for (John Ash and Esther Kirkham in 1849) are in Leek, specifically Rushton Chapel.Also thanks for the information on Withins - I got the 1906 1 inch to a mile map of the area and following your directions I have found it marked on there (possibly as written as Withens).And finally, it is unclear where these fit in (although as our John Ash comes from Tittesworth it is reasonable to assume they are from somewhere on the family tree):
John Tompson was described as not 'conformable to the religion now established' in 1623, when he taught a school at Meerbrook. (fn. 90)
William Davenport of Fould Farm was converted by the Quaker Richard Hickock in 1654 and established a meeting at his home. It had 30 members in 1669, many of whom presumably lived in Leek. (fn. 91)
John Wood, a nonconformist who had been ejected from his fellowship at St. John's College, Cambridge, in 1662 and had preached in the Staffordshire Moorlands, was in 1690 recommended as a minister for a congregation to be based at Meerbrook, but he died later the same year. The recommendation came from Roger Morrice (d. 1702), vicar of Duffield (Derb.) until his ejection in 1662 and later a London merchant. He presumably had connexions with Leekfrith, where he was living when he made his will in 1701. (fn. 92) The house of John Cartwright of Upper Hulme was licensed for worship by protestant dissenters in 1693. (fn. 93)
