    Notes 
    • ELLIS PREACHING HOUSE According to Carsley United Methodist Church Records:


      The Ellis Preaching House was the seventh Methodist meeting house in Virginia.

      Frances Asbury was one of eight official missionaries sent to America by John Wesley between 1769 and 1775. Asbury came to Virginia in 1775.

      Asbury visited the William Ellis family for the first time on August 20, 1775.

      The Methodist Conference met at the Ellis Preaching House on April 27, 1782.

      The exact date the Ellis Preaching House was constructed is uncertain. It was built no later than 1781, since Asbury preached there January 15, 1782. A date earlier than 1781 is suggested by the 1794 Will of William Nicholson, which provided for repairs in the preaching house. The deed for the property was recorded at Sussex Court House on May 15, 1783. Trustees named in the deed (William Nicholson, Caleb Ellis, Emanuel James, Stephen Andrews, Daniel Rogers, Stephen Pepper, Issac Ellis, Benjamin Ellis, and William Ellis, Jr.). They were neighbors. They and their children were registered in the Parish Registrar of the established church (Albemarle Parish). The trustees were plantation owners, many of whom freed their slaves as requested by John Wesley.

      At William Ellis' death in 1795, he left his property to his wife Elizabeth Wright Ellis and then to their son Wright Ellis after her death. Wright Ellis was Deputy Clerk of Sussex County. At Wright Ellis' death, he did not have a Will but settlement in court gave the partial of land where the Ellis Preaching House was located to his daughter, Mary W. Ellis. It is not known when the Ellis Preaching House ceased to exist.

      Nearby churches attribute their beginnings to the Ellis Preaching House: Carsley , Rocky Hock, Owen's Grove, Ellis Chapel, Oak Grove, and Coker's Well Methodist Churches.
