* This list is based primarily on information found in The Seventh Day Baptists in Europe and America, volumes 1 and 2, and Ernest A. Payne’s “More About the Sabbatarian Baptists,” The Baptist Quarterly (London), vol. 14, no. 4, October 1951. Additional information is supplied by Oscar Burdick, “SDB Churches,” an unpublished manuscript.** Is this the same, or the remnant of the Natton congregation, which started around 1660, or is it a separate congregation? Payne’s list includes two seventh-day churches in this shire in December 1690.
