Brethren Archive Exploring the history of some of those known as "Plymouth Brethren", and a few other things.

Powerscourt Conferences


As per the notice on here, extracts from the 1831 Powerscourt Notebooks are to appear very shortly.

Current plan is to serialise the first of the three volumes on here.

Not a great deal is known about the conferences at present, but I would like to collect what background information we have; if anyone can help me with that then I'd be grateful. Particular interest would be to know more about the 1830 and even an alleged 1829 meeting.

On Page 365 of
Investigator and Expositor of Prophecy, Volume 1
there is an advertisement for a book/pamphlet "AN ADDRESS delivered at the conclusion of a meeting assembled for the purpose of considering the subject of unfulfilled prophecy by the Rev R Daly MA Rector of Powerscourt London Seeley Nisbet" .. Quite possibly this would be the closing address of the 1832 conference, so would be very interesting to see!

Random comment, but if the person who found these notebooks ever looks up this page, would be very glad to hear from you and where you came across them?

Hi Tom,

Do you know when the third Powerscourt Notebook will be posted here. I have enjoyed the first two. I am willing to help transcribe as I have considerable experience at it doing some genealogy work some years ago.
Thanks,
Bill

Hi Bill,
Yeah my usual transcriber I believe has his time taken up with work burdens recently so hasn't been able to help as before. I'm absolutely useless at reading old handwriting so that is why it has ground to a halt. Thanks a lot for your offer, which would of course be a great help, and thanks for the ones you did help with recently - I will continue to add the last pages of volume 2 and continue into volume 3 as transcriptions can be done. I think at the moment the last two pages I put up of volume 2 remain untranscribed, so that is why I haven't added any more yet!
best, Tom

Sorry, Tom, I had not noticed there were 2 more pages. I think I can find some time in the next week or two. Are there more pages in Book 2?
All the best to you,
Bill

Thanks Bill! Yes just a couple more pages in Vol 2 now though.
