Scope and Contents note

Deposition made by John Williams of the parish of Llantilio Crossenny. In his deposition Mr Williams confirms that he is a farmer and was born and bred in Llantilio Crossenny, and that he was approaching 50 years of age. He also confirms that he has always uniformly attended the parish church prior to Thomas Price acting as Curate.

Mr Williams goes on to accuse Mr Price of being attached more to the Dissenters than to the church, as he had been preaching at private houses and the doctrine he had been using included examples such as: “Hell was full of little children and when their mothers died the little children that were there would be grasping at their mothers to bring them to them.”

Mr Williams also accuses Mr Price of being inclined to throw odium upon every person coming to the church who did not think it proper to attend Mr Price’s meetings at private houses. As a result Mr Williams and many other parishioners had been impeded from attending the church, as they had been apprehensive of personal public reproach.
