Petition in support of William Witt, 1795

[Winchester Record Office document reference - 21M65/E13/1/88].  Fairly self-explanatory.  Probably connected to the 1796 case of complaint against Peter Geary, the Newport Minister.  See William Witt's Statement in the 1796 action.

of the Chapel of Newport in the Isle of Wight in the County
of Southampton and Diocese of Winchester is well known
