The Parkinson family – Baptists in Quorn

William Parkinson starting farming in Quorn in 1757, and his brother Robert came to live in the village shortly afterwards. The brothers had both become Baptists and in 1760 Robert Parkinson’s home on Meeting Street became Quorn’s first Baptist meeting house. Baptists continued to worship there until the first parts of the current Baptist Chapel were built in 1770, on a site opposite the old meeting house.

There are still descendants of Robert Parkinson living in Quorn and Loughborough today. The attached document shows Robert Parkinson towards the bottom of the first page (highlighted yellow), and continues through the Gambles, Mees and Allens.

Many thanks to Terry Allen for supplying the chart.
