|A fact from Ramshorn appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 5 March 2008, and was viewed approximately 244 times (disclaimer) (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
I created this page for 2 reasons. Most importantly, to fill a gap in the sequence of articles on Primitive Methodism, where Ramsor was an important place in the early days, and frequently visited by Hugh Bourne.
Trivially, having found my first choice of Wikipedia User Name was not available, I chose one which was likely to be available. Some of my ancestors lived at Ramsor, the Warrington family. An article on RAmsor was a natural progression.
I intend adding photos, but think it is now at about the longest this article needs for its purpose, unless editors have significant material for the Ramshorn sub-heading. One addition is to identify and photograph the "rams horn" rocks which I suspect gave the name.
Having (at last) created an article on Richard Jukes, and thus turning one of the red links to blue, I had hoped to include a point of personal interest. Elizabeth Warrington, who was the subject of Hugh Bourne's first funeral sermon, had a nephew, Thomas, born 12 years after her death. Richard Jukes arrived at Ramsor for Thomas Warrington's early to mid teen years. The influence of an able Minister such as Jukes would be invaluable. Thomas married the grand-daughter of one of John Wesley's Travelling Preachers. Thomas's daughter, Ann Elizabeth, married another Methodist. Their son, also a Thomas, adapted one of his farm buildings to be the Methodist Chapel in the village of Luddington near Stratford-upon-Avon. His son became a Methodist Minister. His son has an interest in Methodist history. His son, another Thomas, made his decision to be a Christian at Ramsor, and a year later chose Richard Jukes's hymn for his baptism service. Which makes an interesting illustration of the continuing influences from Hugh Bourne's visit to Ramsor 2 centuries ago.
While believer's baptism is a departure from Methodist custom, because of John Wesley's determination that Methodism should remain a movement within the Church of England, it is the normal practice of some offshoots of Methodism, such as The Church of the Nazarene.
