Sue Goodwill, the Archivist for Ryedale Methodist Circuit, North Yorkshire which relates to the old Malton, Pickering, Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside circuits, has  a record which  states a Chapel licence was applied for in 1803 and another in 1834, the latter with the surname Longfield. The 1803 date ties in with the Wesleyan Chapel records. In the circuit book Longfield is mentioned in 1845.
