Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson stepped into the prevailing winds of holiness when he joined the Chester Preparative of the Westfield Monthly Meeting in 1889.

They embraced Victorian middle class culture, and believed in the efficacy of rational means to advance moral and religious cases such as abolition.
