EDWARD DENNETT was born in the Isle of Wight, 1831, at Bembridge, and died in Croydon in Oct., 1914 after a short illness. His people were all in the Church of England, but he was converted as a lad through the instrumentality of a godly clergyman, and he left the church from conviction and became minister of a Baptist Chapel in Greenwich, having previously matriculated at London University. However in France he came into contact with brethren and on his return resigned his charge. Shortly after “breaking bread” for the first time with those gathered simply at the Lord’s table “unto His Name.”

James Tayor Senior – J Taylor Sr – JT (Sr)
James Taylor Senior was born on January 6, 1870 at Coolaney, near Sligo, Co. Sligo, in North West Ireland. In 1884, at the age of 14, he came into fellowship at Paisley, Scotland, where he had moved to serve his apprenticeship in the linen trade with the firm of Coats. In 1888 he emigrated to St. John, Newfoundland. In 1889, J.T. moved to New York. James Taylor and Estelle Garrett of Baltimore were married c. 1892. They had six children. Mrs. Taylor died 1901 in childbirth or very shortly afterwards. The Lord took him on March 29, 1953.
His ministry as to the service of God, the Assembly and the Person and work of the Holy Spirit have been much appreciated. He was insistent on testing all by scripture.
His critics saw him as being somewhat of a ‘universal lead’ a position he did not accept, unlike his infamous son Jim Taylor JT Jr – who led the Taylorite Exclusive Brethren – now the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church.

The late Mark Lemon, Stone Publishing Trust, said of Mr. Trussler, “I remember him as a man who had an unusual way of presenting things. I suspect that he spent a great deal of time meditating on the Scriptures and on the things of the Lord
- “I have not been able to get a great deal of information about our brother except that he was converted during the 1st World War. He worked as a woodman and then in a saw mill.
- “He was taken to be with the Lord in 1968 when he was in his 80s.” – Source: My Brethren
- My recollection – A brother was enthusiastically expounding on the thoughts of Jim Taylor and the Exclusive Brethren. Mr Trussler’s reply: ‘Silly, in’t it!’.- Sosthenes
