There was a register prior to 1751; about which time, some of the then congregation, discovering in the Minister some swerving from the sentiments up to that time had been espoused; separated, and converted a Barn into a place of worship; leaving the Old Meeting house and choosing for themselves a minister. On the site that the barn stood; a place of worship was built in 1777, enlarged in 1789 and again in 1816 and is now the Independent Meeting-house and known by that name. The earlier Register is now believed to be in the custody of the current Minister of the former place [now Unitarian].

From... "A Register of Deaths in the congregation that attend at the New-meeting House in Bridport, Dorset which bears the date from the time of J Rooker's first coming thither as their Minister on May 9th 1750."
