    The Shaw family were Methodists. John Wesley himself traveled to Grimsby several times between 1743 and 1788 along with several other Methodist preachers in a hard-fought struggle with the established church to built a Methodist congregation there. The first Methodist church was built there in 1757. A larger building built in 1808, which was enlarged in 1837. Then another building built in 1847. After that time several churches were built for Methodists in Grimsby.

    There was a book ?Old Grimsby? published in 1897 written by Rev. George Shaw, son of this George Shaw. It has some interesting stories. Some stories on local elections was very interesting, starting on page 193.

    In this book George (Jr) mentions his ?uncle Alderman Kennington? (p199) and aunt Molly Wharton (p200). George (Sr.) named one of his sons Thomas Wharton, so perhaps he was named after this man, his brother-in-law. Don?t know if Molly was a sister of George (Sr) or Jane.
