In 2010, I purchased a collection of papers that were dated 1915, and was in regards to the much needed restoration and repairs of the old church in East Eliot, including the purchase of brand new pews.
According to a newspaper article that year, the Methodist Conference was waiting on the approval for the repair costs, due to the old system in which church goers had paid for their own pews, for the best seating. In order for the old pews to be removed, their owners (or their heirs, if deceased) had to consent to their removal.
On the following two pages, titled "Pew owners 1st Methodist Episcopal Meeting House, Eliot", a list was made (likely dated early 1915) of the current pew owners. It seems nearly all had consented to the old pew removal, and the order for the new ones could be made.
The pews that were purchased in 1915 must have been destroyed or sold off, as the South Eliot location was already furnished. The memorial and pew number tags were saved, however, as I recently found out last year. Stored in Eliot's current United Methodist Church are two wooden plaques, each one having (almost) all the memorial tags nailed onto them for display.
A few memorial tags differed from what was originally written in the donor booklet, and there is no list as to which numbered pew these memorials were attached to, if the numbers were actually used on the new (1915) furniture.
Below is a 2011 view of the church on the corner of Goodwin and Brixham Road, Eliot, pretty much unchanged today as a private residence, than it was as a place of worship.
