Also known as the Unitas Fratrum, or United Brethren, it was a Reformed Church sixty years before the Reformation, which means that it is the oldest Free Church in Northern Europe.This is the story of the Bowker family, a long-established family at Fairfield Moravian Settlement, in Droylsden, near Manchester.

They were among the very first people to live there when the community was founded in 1785, and members of the family continued to live there for the next 140 years, up until the 1920s.The Bowker family were directly related to John Ockershausen, who had been the Minister at Fulneck Moravian Settlement in Yorkshire in 1745, and had then gone on to become the first Minister at Ockbrook Moravian Settlement in Derbyshire in 1750.The book provides information about the history of Fairfield, Fulneck and Ockbrook Moravian Settlements, in order to give a fuller picture of the lives of the Bowker family in these communities.
