Oxford Circuit Wesleyan Reform Preachers' Plan 1856

The Wesleyan Methodist Society title is misleading: this is actually a Wesleyan Reform Circuit Plan

The Wesleyan Reform movement nationally coincided with disputes around leadership and authority at the local level and several prominent Wesleyans, preachers among them, resigned.

In this preaching plan from 1856, we see names such as Leggatt, Banbury, Crapper and Leake who had been prominent leaders in their local Wesleyan chapels and who aligned with the Wesleyan Reform Union, subsequently a founding partner of the United Methodist Free Church.
