  • Notes 
    • Edmund Sykes Lamplough was descended from the noted Wesleyan layman Dr James Hamilton (1740-1827). Edmund was an underwriter and deputy chairman of the famous London insurance house Lloyd's. A devout Methodist, of whom it was said that he was married to his church, Lamplough occupied several leading lay offices such as the treasurership of the Overseas Missionary Department and the co-treasurership of the Ministerial Training Fund. He served as vice-president of Conference in 1935. Lamplough was a passionate collector of Wesleyana and was president of the Wesley Historical Society from 1927. With his brother Williamson (1854-1925), Edmund was a generous benefactor of the New Room and Wesley's Chapel in City Road, London. He also restored and refurnished Charles Wesley's Bristol house and presented it to the Methodist Church. The brothers built Sunfields Chapel in Blackheath as a memorial to their parents. Lamplough's collection of Wesleyan manuscripts are now on deposit with the Methodist Archives at the John Rylands University Library of Manchester.

      " I was appointed to the Blackheath Circuit in 1892 ... I was already slightly acquainted with the Lamplough family, including their mother, to whom they were devotedly attached. In the family house at Vanbrugh Terrace (which remained the home of Mr. E. S. Lamplough until in weakness he was removed to a nursing home, I found the two brothers Williamson and Edmund, four sisters, and their aunt, Miss Barbara Lamplough. The mother had passed away before that time. Sunfields Wesleyan. Church was their place of worship and the sphere of their devoted activity. ...and through its large Sunday School had a considerable hold upon the neighbourhood. To this school all the family gave service." places which enjoyed Mr Lamplough's generous attention"

      "Bristol stands preeminent, and our readers are well acquainted with the extensive and permanent restorations carried out at the "New Room" and at Charles Wesley's house in that city. The statues of John and Charles Wesley will long be memorials of their donor as well as of the persons represented"

      James Gibbs Feb 2013
      Edmund Sykes Lamplugh's generosity is well remembered in Bristol and on 16 Nov 2013 there will be a half-day conference at which his gift of the New Room and his support for the work undertaken by George Oatley will be the springboard for a discussion of preservation, restoration, conservation. Venue: the New Room.
