From Notes & Queries for SOMERSET AND DORSET, edited by Frederikc W Weaver and Charles H Mato 1891:

In 1753 Mr. Benjamin Whitehead, one of the seceders from
the Old Meeting, licensed his house for worship, and meetings for prayer and the reading of a sermon were regularly held on Sunday evenings. In 1756 a small place of worship was built on the south side of Long Street. On June 2, 1757, a Church was formed, and on October 6, 1757, Rev. Daniel Varder was ordained minister, the following ministers taking part: Rev. James Rooker, of Bridport ; Rev. Jonathan Wheeler, of Axminster ; Rev. Risdon Daracott ; Rev. Richard Pearsall, of Taunton ; Rev, Wm. Gardiner, of Wilton. Mr. Varder died July 30, 1764, and was succeeded January 6, 1765, by Rev. John Lewis. He left Sherborne June 22, 1777, for Broadway, and was afterwards settled at Ringwood, and then at Mere, where he died.
