"...Trevor Thomas of the TS... was concerned that I might be given false information regarding Satanism and the TS. After some correspondence the TS agreed (with some enthusiasm) to distribute a questionnaire specifically designed for its membership in Britain. Both the senior British TS initiate, David Austen, and the TS's High Priest, Michael Aquino, are said to have been keen that members responded to that questionnaire... I received 11 responses to the questionnaire... I was also able to interview David Austen, according to whom the TS has gained many more members since my questionnaire was distributed. If so, my respondents represent approximately twenty percent of the approximately 50 current UK members. (In turn, I estimate that this is about 50% of the Satanists in organized groups in Britain)... There are TS members in Cheshire, Yorkshire, and Lancashire (with 3 in Manchester), London, Essex and the Isle of Man. "

"After the witch-hunting fury of the 17th century, witchcraft declined in England. Some 300 years after the Witch-Finder General, Matthew Hopkins, had terrorized the eastern countries, a series of books appeared which set the scene for the modern reappearance of the ancient craft. Margaret Murray's The Witch-Cult in Western Europe (1921) argued that witchcraft had not been an anti-Christian perversion but the survival of pre-Christian paganism. IN 1949 Gerald Gardner published a novel High Magic's Aid, which purported to give authentic details of witchcraft practice; this was followed five years later by a non-fiction book, Witchcraft Today... Gardner proselytized for the witches in a further book, The Meaning of Witchcraft published in 1959, and attracted a great deal of largely hostile publicity from the newspapers befor his death in 1964.

Agapemonites United Kingdom: Britain - - - - 1845 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 13). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970), pg. 1828. "The 19th century produced the most spectacular recent claimants to messiahship in Britain. Among these were two men, one of whom 'inherited' this claim from the other. Such a transfer of a status as unique as that of messiah must be unprecedented... and yet the group known as Agapemonites, brought into being in the 1840s by an Anglican priest, Henry James Prince, accepted after his death a new immortal messiah in the person of John Hugh Smyth-Pigott. Prince had been renowned at St David's, Lampeter, where he had studied for the Anglican priesthood, as a particularly pious student... after some time his relations with the Church of England became strained, and he opened his own chapel in Brighton. With donations from his supporters, among whom were a number of wealthy women, he bought a large house and grounds at Spraxton in Somerset, and there established his community, the Adobe of Love... "

- 1899 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 13). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970), pg. 1830. "[Prince's] own death, in 1899, might have been expected to see the collapse of the Agapemonites: instead it produced a new messianic claimant. Shortly before his death, Prince had sponsored the building of a church in Clapton, London, known as the Church of the Ark of the Covenant. This development was all the more surprising since in Prince's later years the Agapemonites had done little in the way of evangelization. It is uncertain whether the founding of this church, at which non-resident sympathizers of the Spraxton community occasionally met, had any direct connection with the choice of Prince's successor, or whether Prince had any interest in the continuance of his sect after his death. But it was at this church that, in 1902, John Hugh Smyth-Pigott declared himself the messiah. "
