CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: John Richard Jones, 1765-1822, was a Baptist minister at Ramoth, Llanfrothen in Merioneth. Initially, he was aided in his work by Christmas Evans, but in a meeting in 1798 he left the Baptists to form his own Church of Scotch Baptists, which had 350 members in 1807. Today, in Harlech, Ffestiniog, Glyn Ceiriog and Rhosllannerchrugog, the denomination lives on.
These registers seem to reveal that the Scotch Baptists were established some years before the split in 1798 and the parishes named show the wide extent of the church.
For further administrative information regarding the Scotch Baptists of Merioneth consult, Bywgraffiad J. R. Jones o Ramoth by David Davies (1911) and Cofiant J.R. Jones, Ramoth by David Williams (1913).
