William Chadwick Grimsdick Collection

Scope and Content

This collection contains the papers pertaining to the life and ministry of William Chadwick Grimsdick (1870-1938). A single-page written history of him is included, written by his great-nephew, Timothy Morris, which details how the Grimsdick family moved from Northamptonshire in the 1880s to Haywards Heath, where they attended Exclusive Brethren meetings in Burgess Hill before Edward Grimsdick, William's father, established a meeting in Haywards Heath. William became a prominent member of the Brethren, regularly addressing meetings, and once he got older and could leave his business, he travelled extensively over the English speaking world addressing meetings. A photograph is included with the history. The papers included in the file are related to his ministry and his meetings, and particularly with his travel in the form of correspondence.
