  • I recently put a request on this page for information about Helen Plummer Phillips who lived at Lee Moor house as a child. I thought she may have been baptised at Lee Moor chapel but have since found it was at Plymouth circuit Ebenezer Wesleyan Methodist chapel baptised in 1850 by James Mowat. However the intial question still stands, I am interested in information about Helen Plummer Phillips and her family.

  • I am writing the Wikipedia article for Helen Plummer Phillips, daughter of William and Mary Ann Phillips. Helen was born 1850 or 1851 and baptised in a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel which may have been Lee Moor Chapel. The family lived in Lee Moor House in Shaugh Prior district. William owned the Lee Moor Porcelain Clay Company. He reportedly gave part of the windowsill of the house to restore the Blackaton cross. He died in 1861 and after a court case, the company was sold to the Martin Bros. Helen became a teacher and came to Australia in 1884 to become principal of a girl’s school then became the first missionary sent out from Australia by CMS. Her brother Richard also came to Australia and became an Anglican canon. Both siblings seem to have joined the Anglican church at some point. I would appreciate any information on whether there are any archives from Lee Moor Chapel or any information anyone knows about the Phillips family history or Helen’s history when in England. The website editors have my email address.
