Does anyone know if A.H. Burton eventually left the LC-Brethren after 1890?

More that fifty years ago (1967), as a young man, I used some local recollections of a few elderly folk in the Lincoln area to prepare a tentative exercise in oral history, which was published in 'The Witness' (November 1968), under the title 'Evangelism in Lincolnshire' (pp. 420-422). Two of the principal characters in the story are William Fitzburton Burton (1847-1927) of Goltho Hall, Lincs., and his younger brother Dr. Alfred Burton (1853-1937). Timothy Stunt.

Thank you, Mr. Stunt, very interesting! I try to get your article from Manchester Library for I suppose it is not available online. According the second name of the older brother wasn't Fitzburton but Fitzwilliam, and he was born in 1849 not in 1847.
Greetings, Gabriele

Gabriele, I'm sure your website is far more accurate than I was, fifty years ago when I didn't even have an electric typewriter let alone the internet ! If you let me have an e-mail address I can scan you a personal copy of my piece in the Witness! It is not a very well researched item! Timothy

The National Probate Calendar confirms the name William FitzWilliam (in this spelling).
