St. Mary's Anglican Church (Bartonville, Ont. : Hamilton, Ont.) fonds. -- 1921-1999. -- 89 cm of textual records.

St. Mary's Church was consecrated on 9 November, 1881, as an adjunct to The Church of the Redeemer in Stoney Creek. No separate statistical records appear to have been kept for St. Mary's until it became an independent parish in 1945. Bartonville, Ont. is now part of Hamilton, Ont.

The church was disestablished in 2006 and the parish was amalgamated with Grace Church of Hamilton (also disestablished). This new parish was named Church of the Nativity by Bishop Spence on February 7, 2007. It is located at the former St. Mary's site.

Historical Notes

St. Mary's Church, Bartonville was formed as one of the many offshoots of The Church of the Redeemer in Stoney Creek. Upon the opening of Church of the Redeemer in 1877 Anglicans residing in Bartonville and Winona attended the services and assisted in the parochial expenses but both communities later built their own churches which were, at first, attached to Stoney Creek. St. Mary's Bartonville was opened and consecrated on November 9, 1881. No separate statistical records appear to have been kept for Bartonville until it was set up as an independent parish in 1945. The researcher should consult the records of The Church of the Redeemer for Bartonville baptisms, confirmations, marriages and burials between 1881 and 1945.
