  • SHREWSBURY CHRONICLE, 23 October 1868, page 8.
    On Monday the foundation stone of a new Wesleyan Chapel, at Eaton Mascott, was laid by Mrs. Wells, upon a site kindly presented by Thomas Wells, Esq. After singing a hymn, reading the scriptures, and offering prayer, a handsome trowel, with a suitable inscription, was presented by Mr. Edwards, in the name of the trustees, to Mrs. Wells, who, after spreading the mortar, applying the trowel, and tapping the stone with a mallet, declared it to do “well and truly laid, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” … The congregation then adjourned to Mrs. Shingler’s house … where an excellent tea was provided … The subscriptions promised in the room, together with the collections on the the stone, and the proceeds of the tea amounted to the handsome sum of about £50. The trowel was supplied by Mr. E. H. Robinson, of Shrewsbury.”
    Following the death of the Wells family their Eaton Mascott estate was sold in 1891, and led to the closure of the chapel by 1893.
