The conference of ministers which met in and around Dedham must have grown from the desire of Chapman, Crick, and Dow to reproduce in this new context the presbyterian experiment which they had pioneered in Norwich. At their first meeting of October 22nd, 1582, when the formal order of conference was subscribed and thirteen subscribers were ‘chosen for the Assembly’, these three headed the list of members, and Chapman and Crick were the first to sign. At the first conference under this constitution, Crick was the speaker and Chapman the moderator; at the second they exchanged places, while Dow was the speaker at the third.
