Fonds - Brief Description: 

St. Paul's Anglican Church (Jarvis, Ont.) fonds. -- 1862-2002. -- 35 cm of textual records.

The parish at Jarvis dates from 1846, when Rev. Francis Evans began his ministry. At that time, services were held at the residence of John Jones. St. Paul's Church was constructed and opened on 25 December 1858. A new church was built in 1897 and opened for services on 9 January 1898. Debt-free, the new church was consecrated on 24 September 1909.

The fonds consists of parish registers containing statistical records, services, Vestry and Women's Auxiliary minutes, cemetery and financial accounts. The registers include some statistical records for the Mission of Walpole, and parishes in Hagersville, Nanticoke, and Cheapside, Ont. See the finding aid for further details. The fonds has been microfilmed on 5 reels, numbered 26-27, 29, 37 and 386.
