Interesting name!

Amazon lists two books he wrote

- The Meaning of Baptism and its Relation to Infants - 1932
- Judgment and Punishment in relation to the Unbeliever - 1903

Anyone know if he was part of Brethren or not?

His second name is indeed interesting. The first three of his older brothers were given family names (Mossforth, MIller and Blair) as second names; the fourth brother was given the name of one of the early fathers (Augustine) and number five got a Brethren name. This was evidently not an uncommon practice. Edward Foley had a son named Frank Wigram Foley and Alfred Newton Harris (born c.1838) was brought up in the Ebrington Street meeting in Plymouth. Evidently favoured ministering Brethren were honoured in the nomenclature of children born into the assembly! Timothy
