Description
The Fry Manuscript is a collection of writings from the life of Benjamin Wills Newton (12 December 1807 - 26 June 1899) with emphasis on the Plymouth Brethren in the 19th century. From the Christian Brethren Archive at John Rylands University Library, Manchester.
Background
Benjamin Wills Newton was an evangelist and author of Christian books. He was influential in the Plymouth Brethren. Although initially a close friend of John Nelson Darby, their disagreement on matters of church doctrine and practice ultimately led to  the 1848 split of the brethren movement into the Open Brethren and Exclusive Brethren.
