J.S. Giles withdrew from the Taylor fellowship circa 1920; see "Recent Teaching and its Effect". Little is known of him after this point; A friend says; "He maybe saw himself as the rightful successor to FER, and this may have tainted the stand he took against JT's novelties. There must have been a few who went out with him and continued to meet in a narrow circle. He published a little magazine called The Listener for about a decade afterwards. No bound volumes - each issue had separate page numbering. of content, there's nothing useful in them."
Any more info would be good.

Think J S Giles came to England from Australia around 1910 to fill the gap after F E R was taken.

There is a fair bit spoken of JSG around page 600 in Noel, vol 2;

In 1920 there was a further secession from the London (Raven-Taylor) party. Mr. J. S. Giles who had while in Sydney been rather active in opposing Glanton's action in 1908, found matters of teaching in the London party becoming so serious that in 1920 he with others were practically forced out after 40 years of fellowship with them.
So these faithful brothers learned ten years later what many others had learned in Sydney and elsewhere in 1910, that it was a question of agreeing with all that was said or done by the Raven-Taylor leaders, or getting out. So in the year 1920, some 20 or 25 meetings that agreed with Mr. Giles and refused the new teaching, went out, Mr. Giles along with them; to continue together in what they had before believed and accepted.

J.S.Giles was one of the people disagreeing with JT on "Fulfilled Responsibility" in 1916-17. He wrote a tract "Responsibility, Faithfulness and Obligation" which is referred to in JT's letter of 12 January 1917 to JSG. Does any one know of a copy of this please?

James Skuse Giles was born 12 Apr 1862 in Fairford, Gloucestershire, to James and Emma (nee Skuse). He died on 13 Jun 1948 in Bournemouth, Hampshire. In Noel's 'History of the Brethren' (vol.2, p.596) it mentions that "Mr. J. S. Giles' present address is 5 Vaughan Ave., Hendon, London, N. W., England." and from that information I was able to find him in the 1939 Register where his occupation was given as "Mission Preacher". My maternal grandmother was a Giles but I don't think we are related.
