General note

Ilminster is a town located in the southwest of England, and takes its name from the River Ile and its longstanding church, The Minster, also known as St. Mary’s Church. The town has been home to a market since the Middle Ages. In the Georgian period, Ilminster housing expanded thanks to resources from nearby Ham Hill. Ilminster parish was a stop on Whitaker and Occom’s fundraising tour of England, and even prior to their arrival, the town church donated money to the Indian education cause.
