Thank you very much for all the excellent material found on this site, I can not tell which part is my favorite because everything is great, but having read what's on the site, especially the brochure about the "Trinity", I would like to know more this author, if he is an ex-exclusive, but has not been in the "Open Brethren", my question is, he has remained fundamentally sound in the faith? he ended his life as an independent without associating anyone?

It would be great also if any of these booklets :

_Some plain words to Brethren
_The spiritual revival of the nineteenth century and our relation to it to-day
_What is the real fellowship of the church of God?

could be uploaded to the site for some brother, as the theme of communion is always one of great importance, and it is my special interest also everything that has to do with the history of the Brethren.

The grace of the Lord be with you, dear brother in this service

Hi Tai, Thanks for your comment, I don't know much about R.E. apart from the brief notes on "The Truth as to the Trinity" page, but yes he was an ex-Taylor brother who came among the OBs. I haven't got the other pamphlets mentioned, I see at least some of them are in CBA, but if they turn up I would certainly add them to the site.
best, Tom

Many thanks to Marty for the useful details of the ancestry of Theodora Muriel Elliott [née Wilson]. One suggestion: According to the family tree in Rob Dann's biography of ANG Muriel's mother's names were Mary 'Bethia' which were the names of Muriel's great grandmother, the first wife of Norris Groves. Her maternal grandfather was ANG's second son Frank who married Harriet Reeve. I'm sure Tom's genealogical dexterity can cope with all this! Timothy Stunt
