Revision as of 07:54, 28 October 2020

See Branches of Plymouth Brethren to explain abbreviation types (although in short: OB (& TW-P) are Halls & Chapels within the "open brethren" (although GH's (generally) maintain a separate network from the Chapels). EB/TW/TW-N are "Careful" Brethren (similar to OB Halls), and BC are (generally) independent community churches with early or indirect PB influence, and will (usually) not consider themselves "Brethren").  AA/CA refers to assemblies of African or Caribbean origin, or predominant demographic, although all ethnicities are overly welcome in any assemblies.

The above primer link expands on the abbreviations, and also contains introduction to this (and other) sheets within the overall History. There have been scores of branches with their own distinctive networks and strengths within the history of the PB, and many branches continue to flourish today, and while no assembly or gathering is identical to the others, each is thought to maintain a fervent desire for simplicity in gathering around the Lord Jesus, though practices and secondary doctrines may vary culturally and/or preferentially as autonomous (yet inter-dependent) local churches.

Assemblies are sorted geographically, and will, D.V., eventually have further history within. Red links on Brethrenpedia are presently undeveloped, and blue links contain data. Appreciate patience with our progress, and if you'd like to help, please contact any of the editing team, preferably via social media.  

See Gospel Pioneering in Virginia for a Letters of Interest article from 1946 on the earliest Open assemblies in Virginia.

    • c/o Dr. Charles Mettauer Bradbury +1905-1908+ (b. 1862 - d. 1930 Forest Hill, Richmond, VA);
      • Dr. Bradbury was employed as a food chemist for the state department; wife Cora Blanche Lafferty Bradbury (b. Pittsburgh, PA); m. 1893 at Kanayawa, Japan, officiated by Rev. T.C. Winn. Charles' father was John W. Bradbury (1827-1904), and his grandfather was Samuel Bradbury, whose wife Sarah was a grand-daughter of William Leighton (1723-1793).

William Leighton fought in the American Revolutionary War, and "assisted in raising and equipping the 112 men who, at the call of Warren, marched from Kittery under command of his cousin, Capt. Samuel Leighton, to join the army at Cambridge in April 1775." It was also written that he was "a zealous patriot... prominent in arousing the patriotic spirit of the people." He was a Selectman from 1770-1776 of the town of Eliot (Kittery), Maine, and member of a congress of York Co., Maine. This data originated from Leighton Genealogy by T.F. Jordan, via a 1923 application from Dr. Bradbury's son Frank M. (a Richmond attorney in the 1920's) towards a membership in the Virginia chapter of Sons of the American Revolution via Ancestry.com.

There's also a story on Wikipedia about William Leighton's ancestor Dr. Alexander Leighton (b. 1570 Glasgow, Scot. - d. 1672 Dover, NH) writing a pamphlet in 1628 that criticized bishops presiding over the Church of Scotland, which led to imprisonment and torture under the reign of King Charles I.

    • Cyril Abraham Fox +1908+ (b. 1884 Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada - d. 1940 Pittsburgh, PA)
      • In 1900, Cyril was living in Paterson, NJ. In 1905, he married Jean Laine McLeish (b. 1879 Toronto, ON - d. 1915 Richmond, VA) who was raised in Cleveland, OH. She died at the age of 36, leaving Cyril and two young daughters Jeanne Mallon Fox (1906-1983 m. Hubert Linn Edsall) & Margaret Fox (1910-1995, m. James Gibson Bair). Cyril was employed as a traveling salesman. Later in 1915, Cyril remarried Julia Florence Barcus (1873-1961) from Pittsburgh, PA. His parents were Michael & Alice Mallon Fox, both born in Ireland.
    • James Thomas McGraw +1908+ (b. 1864 Burnley, Lancashire, Eng. - d. 1915 Richmond, VA) m. Amelia Campbell McLinn McLeish (b. 1876 Toronto, ON - d. 1950 Evendale, OH) in 1894 at Hamilton, OH. His wife was employed in 1900 in Richmond in law enforcement. James was self-employed in Richmond +1882-1910+ as a hardware merchant at 1442 E. Main that sold railway, machinist, farming implements, material for carriages and wagons, and foundry supplies wholesale. Burnley, where James was born, is 20 miles north of Manchester, and in 1866 was the largest producer of cotton in the world. They had three children:
      • Edward Huntington McGraw (b. 1898 VA - d. 1961 Bryn Mawr Park, NY) m. Amy Catherine Snyder in Cambridge, MA.
      • James Charleton McGraw (b. 1905 VA - d. 1990 Cincinatti, OH) m. Gertrude Hagemeyer. Employed as a printer, but no known relation to the James H. McGraw that founded what became the largest publisher of educational materials in the world.
      • Gordon Meader McGraw (b. 1909 VA - d. 2001) m. Blanche Phyllis (1911-1982).
    • By 1927, there was a Mrs. B. Wood living in Richmond that would have been the remaining exclusive sister.

Seven Mile Ford

  • tent meetings 1903 first in Grayson County with L.L. Kendrick (St. Elmo, TN), then in Smyth County, joined by Br. Moonaw; Kendrick wrote in Aug. 1903 in Our Record from Seven Mile Ford, "Tent is up and meetings going on for some weeks. A few bright cases of conversion. Some others of whom we are not sure. Several others inquiring the way of life. Pray for us."

In Oct. 1903, an update was given: "Our brother, L.L. Kendrick, pitched his tent at Seven Mile Ford on May 30th last, and is still at it in the same place. The attendance has been good and the interest sustained from the beginning. There have been several professed conversions with others, who still seem to be in trouble of soul. Besides the tent meetings, some thousands of tracts have been distributed. If possible, tent work will be continued through October, and then moved further south. Remember our bother (sic) in prayer."
