For William Henry Westcott's pioneer evangelism in Coniston, Westmorland and later, with his brother Upton, in the Belgian Congo, see Roger Shuff Yatol, 'In Ruskin's Shadow: Darbyite Brethren in Coniston, 1895-1975' in Brethren Historical Review xvi (2020) 117, 133 . Apparently the author was able in 2019 to access < http://www.stempublishing.com/authors/Biographies/ westcott.html > but this seems (in February 2021) to be no longer accessible. Timothy Stunt
