      Nonconformity
      The earliest record of nonconformity in Erlestoke occurs in 1672 when William Aldridge was licensed as a Baptist teacher at the house of Thomas George. (fn. 91) William Gough, who has been called both an Independent and a Presbyterian, ministered to the church until 1685. (fn. 92) From 1689 to 1714 Edward Froude led the church: John Watts of Westbury was pastor from 1720 to 1731. In the meantime a church at Bratton was growing out of a meeting in the house of Jeffery Whittaker; in 1734 a meeting-house was built there and some time after 1740 Erlestoke church was merged into Bratton. (fn. 93) In 1702 the dwelling-house of Isaac Axford the younger was licensed for Quaker meetings
