The purpose of this thesis has been to re-examine the roots from which John Wesley's organization arose and to trace its development from the earliest Methodist Societies until Wesley's death, that is to the point at which the Methodist Societies began to emerge as the Methodist Church The investigation was designed, first, to study in particular the relationship of Early Methodist organization to Quakerism, and second, to inquire whether Wesley had added any new elements to eighteenth century ecclesiastical organization. The following is a brief summary of conclusions The three points at which Quakerism could have influenced Early Methodist organization were, first, in the rise of the Religious Societies of the Church of England, second, at the time of the Wesley -Quaker associations at Bristol, and third, at the second stage of the shaping of Early Methodist organization.
