John Toland’s statement that in the last years of his life Milton “was not a profest Member of any particular Sect among Christians, he frequented none of their Assemblies, nor made use of their peculiar Rites in his Family” has been rarely questioned since 1698, the year his biography of Milton appeared. Recently discovered archival evidence from the parishes of St Margaret, Westminster, and from St Giles Cripplegate document activities that warrant a reconsideration and possible qualification of this long-held view.
