Farnley had classes in the Methodist Society and membership is known from 1781 to 1802. The table here is extracted from entries in books of the Methodist Society in Bradford Archives. The unlined and unnumbered pages carry the information of all the local societies in the Bradford area and sometimes beyond.
The book gives the state of class membership for thirteen separate years over a 22 year period. A grey cell means that person is listed as being amongst the membership for that particular year. Whem the class attended is known, it is entered in the table. The 3rd class was from Farmley Moorside.
The listings were usually made in June. The earlier records give the most information while the latter years just give name and surname.
Farnley Hill Wesleyan Methodist Church was built on
Stonebridge Lane in 1797, so the meeting of the 'classes' would have taken place there and before in private homes under a 'leader'.
