History of Ebenezer Chapel

Ebenezer Chapel was built within the grounds of Friday Street Farm by John Irving in 1820, having settled in Arlingham from Dumfriesshire in Scotland. John had hoped that his eldest son would become a member of the clergy and he did. Having been educated at Trinity College in Cambridge, he became a Church of England priest but never addressed a congregation at Ebenezer Chapel as far as I can discover. John split his time between Arlingham and Bristol as his occupation was a Merchant/Ship owner. The Bristol Record Society showed that between 1800 and 1838, John owned 'one of the greatest fleets in the history of the port'. John Irving entered the Bristol merchant elite in 1815 by which time he had converted to the Wesleyan Methodist religion and gave free passage to the West Indies to nine Wesleyan missionaries. He served on the national committee of the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society between 1819 and the 1850's, making sizeable donations to the Society, and having a special interest in the West Indies.
