Nonconformists, a title given to those Protestants of England who refused to conform to the doctrines and ceremonials of the Established Church in that country; first applied in 1572. Ninety Years afterwards (1662) about 2,000 ministers of the Established Church, unwilling to subscribe to the Thirty-nine Articles of Faith, seceded, and were called Dissenters, a name used at the present time in speaking of all British Protestants who are not attached to the Church of England. The English-American colonies were first peopled chiefly by Non-conformists and Dissenters.
