Cumpston Research

Extract from the Surman Index:


'The great strength of the index is Surman's exhaustive searching of printed denominational sources. He noted changes in annual listings as well as abstracting details from obituaries published in the Congregational Year Books (1846-1972) and denominational periodicals, such as the Evangelical Magazine, the London Christian Instructor or Congregational Magazine, and the Christian Reformer, none of which is indexed comprehensively. He also searched denominational historical society journals, such as the Transactions of the Congregational Historical Society and the Unitarian Historical Society, as well as the many county histories of Congregationalism, such as Nightingale's Lancashire Nonconformity, Browne's Congregationalism in Norfolk and Suffolk, Miall's Congregationalism in Yorkshire, Urwick's Nonconformity in Cheshire and his later study of Hertfordshire, David's Evangelical Nonconformity in Essex, Sibree's Warwickshire, Coleman's Northamptonshire, Densham and Ogle's Dorset, and so on, many of them imperfectly indexed. Surman included modern reference works as well as more specialised works on religious dissent such as G. L. Turner's Original Records, where he noted the references to ministers in the 1669 Conventicle Returns and the application for licences under Charles II's Declaration of Indulgence (1672), Alexander Gordon's Freedom After Ejection (1917) with its biographical index, and A. G. Matthews's indispensable Calamy Revised (1934; 1988) and Walker Revised (1948; 1988).
