Protestant Nonconformity in Higham on the Hill

The house of Nathaniel Stephens junior, a Presbyterian, was licensed for dissenting meetings in 1672.[1] There were seven nonconformists enumerated here in 1676.[2]

In 1829 20 Methodists were recorded as meeting in Higham and Lindley.[3]

No return was made to the 1851 religious census and no nonconformist places of worship were noted in 19th-century trade directories.
