John HALL is a fairly common name and there are others in the 1851 census and later. The principal one is John HALL, schoolteacher and Baptist Minister of Gorsley, who was born in Shropshire c1806 and came to Gorsley in January 1831. He was responsible for the building of three Baptist Chapels in the area.
