Administrative/Biographical history:

Clapham was associated with Evangelicalism from 1792, when the 'Clapham Sect' was established. This was the name given to a group of evangelical Christians living in and around Clapham from around 1792 to 1815. The group included abolitionist William Wilberforce.

H R Wilton Hall, the author of this document, is possibly the same H R Wilton Hall as the librarian of Saint Albans Cathedral and author of Hertfordshire: a reading book of the County (1904), Our English Towns and Villages (1906) and Social Life in England through the Centuries (1920).
