Fonds - Brief Description: 

St. Paul's Anglican Church (Norval, Ont.) fonds. -- 1846-1965. -- 13 cm of textual records.

It is believed that services may have been held by travelling missionaries in the Norval area as early as 1830. At a Vestry meeting in 1845 it was decided that a church should be built. The meeting was held in the school-house, but the following year the meeting took place in the church, so construction must have taken place during 1845-1846. St. Paul's has been associated with several other churches in the area over the years. Its latest association was with St. Alban's (Glen Williams, Ont.)

Fonds consists of parish registers containing statistical records, services, Vestry, Women's and Girls' Auxiliary minutes. The fonds has been microfilmed on 4 reels, numbered 123, 131-133.

Historical Notes

It is believed that services may have been held by travelling missionaries in the Norval area as early as 1830. At a Vestry meeting in the schoolhouse in 1845 it was decided that a church should be built. St. Paul's was completed about the middle of 1846. Norval was served by the same Rector as Hornby, Stewarttown and Georgetown during the 1850s, but Hornby was subsequently transferred to Milton, where it remained until 1896 and Georgetown became a separate parish in 1867. Hornby and Stewarttown were reunited as one charge in 1896 and Norval was again added in 1902, after some years with its own resident minister and a period when it was served by students from Toronto. In 1922 the rectory at Stewarttown was sold and one purchased at Norval. Norval is now a point of St. Alban's Church, Glen Williams.
