Most of those identified as Other Methodists in the published census had simply been recorded as 'Methodists' in the manuscript census schedules. We can only surmise that many people attended the services of whichever Methodist preacher happened to be in their neighbourhood. If denominational identity had become more distinct since 1831, the finer gradations within the Methodist Church seem to have remained somewhat fuzzy. ' Yet, as noted above, the printed census again failed to distinguish between the two churches in 1852, presumably because there were few Freewill Baptists in Upper Canada.

Badger ensured that there would be no disturbance on the part of the congregation by going quietly with the others to the nearby tavern where the trial was to take place. 4 The next morning, after hostile witnesses had testified that the accused had 'opposed our brethren in bearing arms' and spoken 'diminutively of the British King,' they were bound over to appear before the court at Trois-Rivieres.

Even these visits were largely interrupted by the War of 1812, leaving the Eastern Townships largely dependent on unordained local preachers.
