THE REGISTER 0F SAINT PAUL'S CHURCH AT FORT ERIE, 1836-1844

INTRODUCTION BY

BRIG.-GENERAL E. A. CRUIKSHANK, LL.D., F.R. HIST. S.

When the Reverend Robert Addison arrived at Niagara as the missionary of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, in July, 1792, he found that the white population of the district of Nassau to which he was assigned, consisted of about eight hundred families, scattered along the shore of Lake Ontario from the mouth of the Forty Mile Creek to Niagara, along the west bank of the Niagara river to Fort Erie, and thence along the shore of Lake Erie as far west as Sugar Loaf Hill, a distance of more than one hundred miles. Settlements had been made on the Chippawa Creek and other streams, navigable by canoes or boats, flowing into Niagara river or Lake Ontario. The Fifth Regiment of Foot, numbering less than five hundred of all ranks, garrisoned Fort Niagara and its dependencies. These outposts were at the lower landing, soon afterwards named Queenston, the upper landing at Chippawa, and Fort Erie, among which a company and a half of soldiers were distributed, who were employed during the season of navigation in the transport of supplies and merchandise. The only clusters of buildings deserving the name of villages were near Navy Hall at Niagara, and these small military stations.

On August 23, Mr. Addison married Henry Warren, a son of the commissary at Fort Erie, to Catherine Aglor. This was the first marriage recorded by him. Until then, as Richard Cartwright stated, "the practice in such cases was to go before the Officer Commanding the Post who publickly read to the Parties the Matrimonial Service in the Book of Common Prayer, using the Ring and observing the other forms there prescribed, or if he declined it, as was some times the case, it was done by the Adjutant of the Regiment." [Simcoe Papers, I, p. 234.] After the appointment of magistrates this ceremony was generally performed by them. On the following day, Mr. Addison recorded the marriage of Captain James Hamilton, of the Fifth Regiment, to Louisa, his wife, with the comment "they had been married by some commanding officer or magistrate and thought it more decent to have the office repeated." He was almost immediately appointed chaplain to the garrison, but does not seem to have visited Fort Erie until about 12 April, 1793, when he records the baptism of sixteen persons there, among them being Mary the daughter of Henry and Catherine Warren. His register contains no subsequent evidence of a visit to that place until 27 July, 1804, when it records the baptism of Alexander Douglas, whose younger son, Dr. William Douglas, is still living there. The next entry of baptisms at Fort Erie is dated on 11 September, 1806, when four children were christened. On 20 April, 1810, he registers the marriage of Mahlon Burwell, Esq., and Sarah Haun, "from near Fort Erie," who had probably come to Niagara to be married. Burwell soon after removed to the London District, where he became distinguished as a land surveyor, a magistrate, a militia officer, and a member of the legislative assembly for twenty years. Two baptisms are recorded at Fort Erie on 18 January, 1811, and then occurs another long interval of eight years until 14 January, 1819, when the marriage of James Gray McLean of Montreal and Mary Douglas of Bertie is recorded, and on that day and the next the baptism of thirteen children in Bertie and Fort Erie.

On the conclusion of peace the ferry below the Fort Erie rapids to the village of Black Rock on the opposite bank of the river had been reestablished and several stores, taverns, and other buildings were erected near the ferry-wharf and the mills at the rapids, forming a small straggling village, which became a place of considerable trade and about 1816 received the name of Waterloo. The most notable resident then was Lieut. Colonel John Warren, who besides being commandant of the local regiment of militia, was a Justice of the Peace, a Judge of the Court of Requests for the trial of small civil causes, and had succeeded his father as collector of customs and lessee of the ferry. Tradition relates that, as a magistrate, he had officiated at many marriages, of which the record has been lost. In consideration of his public services he had received the maximum grant of crown lands and had obtained a licence of occupation of the glebe of four hundred acres in the township of Bertie. Other persons of consequence were Benjamin Hardison, a magistrate and owner of a considerable tract of land, who had been a member of the assembly, William Stanton, deputy assistant commissary general, and Alexander Douglas, a prosperous merchant.

In 1820 the "chapelry of Chippawa" was established in the townships of Stamford and Willoughby. The Reverend William Leeming, who became the first minister made frequent entries of baptisms, marriages and burials at Fort Erie, Bertie, and Waterloo. Among the burials thus recorded in 1823 are Benjamin Hardison, aged about seventy on July 28, and Mrs. Warren, the widow of Commissary John Warren, aged eighty-three, on September 22. Between 12 August, 1821, and 27 March, 1825, fifty-six baptisms are registered as having taken place in Bertie, or at Fort Erie or Waterloo, several of them being residents of the township of Humberstone. Among the marriages recorded are Captain Donald Charles McLean and Ann Warren, 23 August, 1820; Colonel John Warren and Charlotte Stanton, 1 May, 1822; and James Hamilton, Esq., of Southwold, third son of Hon. Robert Hamilton of Queenston, and Catherine Jane Warren, 1 November, 1824. It is stated on credible authority, that divine service was held at the Fort Erie mills and in the house of Benjamin Hardison. On 23 April, 1821, a deed of a plot of land fronting on the river road of a width of eighty-seven feet by two hundred feet in depth, was executed by William Smith, merchant, conveying it at a price of two hundred pounds sterling, to John Warren, Esquire, Benjamin Hardison, Benjamin Hardison, the younger, Andrew Miller, David Berger, Cyrenius Hall, William Powell, Henry Trout, Samuel McAfee, Peter Plato, and Edward Kerr, yeomen, as trustees, to be used as a site for a church and graveyard and for no other purpose whatsoever. It would appear that a temporary building was soon erected, for Mr. Leeming records baptisms at Waterloo church on 3 August, 1823, and again on 4 July, 1824. However this may be, on 15 June, 1824, Colonel James Kerby, who had lately removed from Queenston to Fort Erie and taken charge of the mills, wrote in the following terms to Major Hillier, secretary to Sir Peregrine Maitland.

"A number of respectable persons residing a short distance from this, on the Niagara river, are very desirous of building a small chapel to Answer the purpose of a church & School house And wishing to have it underpin[n]ed with Some good Stone-that are to be found about the Garrison-would it be perfectly Agreeable to His Excellency the Governor to allow them permission to carry Away A Sufficient quantity to Answer their purpose, which I dont think will exceed 4 or 5 Cords."

This request was probably granted, and this building of wood was used as a church until 1874 when it was replaced by a larger stone structure. The burial of Matthias Haun in Bertie, 4 February, 1825, and the baptism of Mary Jane Miller in Waterloo church in 31 August, 1828, are the only entries in the Chippawa register during those years, which seem to relate to this missionary station. Some time in 1828, the Reverend John Anderson took charge as resident missionary. In the course of the same year Colonel Kerby addressed this memorial to Sir John Colborne, who succeeded Maitland as Lieutenant Governor.

"The Memorial of James Kerby in behalf of the congregation of the Episcopal Church at Waterloo, near Fort Erie, in the District of Niagara-

Humbly Sheweth that your Memorialist As one of the Church Wardens was lately instructed to purchase A Suitable Organ for Said Church, at Buffalo in the United States-for One hundred pounds to be delivered on the first day of November Next-the purchase having been made Agreeable to their Wishes, your Memorialist was next instructed to Ask your Excellency's leave to be permitted to bring over said Organ free of duty-And if your Excellency Saw fit to cause the Collector at that port, to be instructed not to exact the duty thereon."

This application was also successful. In 1834 Colonel Kerby presented the church with the solid silver communion service, which is still in use. Kerby was then, and until his death, twenty years later, the most distinguished and faithful adherent of the church. After winning notable distinction as an officer of militia in the war with the United States, he had taken an active part in public affairs as town warden, justice of the peace, Judge of the Court of Requests, commandant of a militia regiment and member of the pensions board. He had become the proprietor of the Fort Erie mills, where ship loads of wheat, brought down from the London and Western districts, were converted into flour and exported to Montreal. In 1831 he was appointed a member of the legislative Council, and in 1834, collector of customs at Fort Erie.

John Warren, the elder, William Stanton, and Benjamin Hardison all had large families, who intermarried and formed a sort of local aristocracy. Kerby's eldest daughter married a Warren and her sister married a Hardison. As elsewhere in many parts of Upper Canada, several retired officers of the British army and Royal Navy had settled in the neighbourhood, who lived with considerable dignity. Among these may be named Lieut. Colonel Arthur Jones, C.B., his sons Lieut. Arthur Jones and Lieut. Charles Jones, R.N., Major Benamin Rooth, Captain Francis Keogh, and Lieut. James Jackson, R.N.

When Mr. Anderson took charge of the mission he was twenty-four years of age, unmarried, and had been recently ordained. He occupied it for eight years as a missionary priest. The register for this period, as his note states, was destroyed, when his house burned. He had then married Helen Yule, a sister of Mrs. Alexander Douglas.

Late in 1835, Sir John Colborne determined to bring into effect the thirty eighth section of the Canada Act, which authorised the Lieutenant Governor "from time to time with the advice of the Executive Council. . . . to contitute and erect within every township or parish" in the province one or more Parsonage or Rectory, or Parsonages or Rectories, according to the Establishent of the Church of England," and to endow each of such rectories with lands reserved for that purpose within the townships in which they were situated. This section had remained in abeyance for forty four years. Forty-four rectories were then established. By letters patent, dated 16th January, 1836, "a Parsonage or Rectory at Waterloo within the Township of Bertie was erected and constituted to be thereafter known and designated as the first Parsonage or Rectory within the said Township," and lots numbers six and seven in the fifth concession from Niagara river and six and seven in the sixth concession containing in all four hundred acres were set apart as an endowment or glebe for such rectory. By letters patent bearing the same date the Reverend John Anderson was presented to the Lord Bishop of the Diocese of Quebec for confirmation as rector. Although it will be observed that he made his first entry in the register as rector on March 26, he was not formally admitted until the ninth of May following by a commission from Archdeacon John Strachan, the Bishop's Commissary.

The township of Bertie in which the rectory was situated contained about thirty-six thousand acres, divided into three concessions, parallel with Lake Erie, each consisting of thirty-five lots of one hundred acres, besides an irregular broken front on the lake shore, and sixteen concessions, numbering from the Niagara river, the first four consisting of ten lots each and the remainder of sixteen each, also of one hundred acres. The ground was gently undulating and heavily wooded with a great variety of trees. Much of the low land was swampy and required drainage. Water-power for mills was found at the Fort Erie rapids and on two small streams, Black Creek and Frenchman's Creek flowing into Niagara river, which also were navigable for some distance inland by canoes and row-boats, and on the Six Mile Creek flowing into Lake Erie. A notable rocky ridge extending from near the mouth of Miller's Creek on the Niagara to the anchorage east of Point Abino on Lake Erie, formed a natural highway, bisecting the township transversely.

After a survey was made, it was parcelled out among the officers and other ranks of Butler's Rangers and the military departments at Niagara on disbandment, in the proportion authorised according to their rank, as the royal instructions directed that the officers should receive lands near those allotted to their men to favour their immediate organization as militia. Captain George Dame of Butler's Rangers was assigned thirty lots, forming a solid block of three thousand acres, in the north-western corner of the township, yet he obtained permission to reside at Three Rivers and never occupied these lands. Captain John Powell of the Indian department was allotted an equal quantity, but it was distributed throughout the township in nearly every concession. Commissary John Warren received 1400 acres and Hon. Robert Hamilton a thousand acres in blocks, the latter adjoining the lands of Captain Dame at the rear of the township and distant from any navigable water, which probably made them least desirable. Parshall Terry, who was a member of the first provincial parliament and resided in the adjacent township of Willoughby, obtained a grant of five hundred acres, also in a block. The private soldiers and non commissioned officers received grants of from two to five hundred acres, for the location of which they seem to have drawn lots. Their surnames show that they were nearly all of German Origin, for example, Anger, Anguish, Benner, Berger, Creger, House, Huffman, Lutes, Maybee, Putman, Sypes, Windecker, and Wintermute. Intermingled with them were some discharged soldiers of the army, of British nativity, who had decided to become settlers. Ten years later Simcoe's proclamation attracted a steady influx of immigrants from the United States, some being termed "late loyalists," from having taken no active part in resisting the revolution, or were Quakers or Mennonites. The Quakers were nearly all of English origin and bore such surnames as Burwell, Cutler, Dennis, Havens, Hill, Pound, Schooley, Webster and Wilson. The Mennonites were of German descent as appears by the names of Barnhart, Climenhaga, Danner, Fretz, Hahn, Hershey, Jansen, Kraemer, Misener, Morgentern (Morningstar), Near, Neff, Sherk, Shisler, Troup, Wilhelm, Winger, and Zavitz. They spoke and some of them wrote the German dialect known as Pennsylvanian Dutch. They came in parties to select lands that suited them, and having found them, returned to fetch their families and movable property. Some of them secured crown lands; others preferred to purchase farms already partly cleared. Many of the earlier settlers sold their lands to these immigrants and moved further inland. Both Mennonites and Quakers travelled overland in covered waggons from Pennsylvania or New Jersey, bringing with them cattle and horses, agricultural implements and household furniture. They entered the province by the ferry from Black Rock and settled in the back parts of Bertie and in the adjacent townships of Sugar Loaf East and Sugar Loaf West, afterwards named Humberstone and Wainfleet. When the rectory of Waterloo was established many of these families had resided in their new homes for more than thirty years. They did not attend the church but the younger generation came to Mr. Anderson to be married and occasionally brought their children to him for baptism. The surnames of Adair, Campbell, Craig, Maxwell, McCrae, McFarlane, McIntosh, McIntyre, Mackenzie, Nairn, Reid, and Scott indicate a considerable immigration from Scotland, of persons who were generally merchants or clerks. The negro and coloured population of the frontier had grown so large that it was found easy to enlist a "coloured corps" of two hundred men for military service in 1838. In rather more than forty years the inhabitants of the district had increased ten fold, from about three thousand to thirty thousand. The ravages of war which had laid waste a great part of it had been repaired and most of the log houses replaced by better ones. But only about one third of the land had been cleared for cultivation. After 1830 the transportation of merchandise to and from the west was gradually diverted from Niagara river to the Welland Canal. The harbour and wharf at old Fort Erie was seldom used except for unloading a cargo of wheat for the mill, the warehouses were empty. The fort had not been rebuilt and the small garrison was withdrawn from the barracks. The neighbouring houses were occupied only by a few families of fishermen or smugglers. A project for a canal from the lake to the river below the rapids failed to find sufficient financial support, owing perhaps to political disturbances, which began soon after a survey was made.

The mill and the ferry made Waterloo a place of considerable commercial activity. There was no other grist-mill nearer than Chippawa and no other ferry above Niagara Falls. It was a rambling village of fifty or sixty houses, the sandy flat between the high bank and the water and extending along the river for a mile. Of these houses an unusual proportion were shops, stores, or taverns. There were two resident physicians, Drs. Benjamin Prescott Hall and Cyrenius Hall. A post office had been established for a time in charge of Colonel Kerby. Three parallel roads, half a mile apart, named the Garrison, Bertie, and Gilmore roads, ran directly westward. In wet weather, these were scarcely passable by any kind of wheeled carriage. The river road, leading to Chippawa, was probably the route of the greatest travel, on which a number of coaches or sleighs daily passed to and from Chippawa, Queenston, and Niagara. Another road, a little farther inland led directly from Waterloo ferry to the Beaver Dams crossing Chippawa Creek about three miles from its mouth. In the season of navigation a small steamer, towing a freight boat made a voyage from Chippawa to Waterloo every other day. Some time later a larger steamship commenced running from Chippawa to Schlosser, thence to Waterloo, and then to Buffalo, returning by the same route.

The recent years had been prosperous, bringing good crops and good prices. According to the assessment rolls, which probably understated the facts, the population of the Niagara District had increased from 20,916 in 1830 to 30,522 in 1838.

It would appear that the rectory of Waterloo was understood to include not only the entire township of Bertie, but the adjacent township of Humberstone on the west, and some portion of the township of Willoughby adjoining its northern boundary. The population of Bertie, returned at 1,982 in 1830 had grown to 2,315 in 1838, while that of Humberstone increased from 724 in 1830 to 1,174 in 1838. Outside of Waterloo and the still smaller village of Gravelly Bay, or Port Colborne, at the southern entrance of the Welland Canal, nearly everybody gained their living in some way from the land.

The register now published begins on 20 March, 1836, and ends on 14 October, 1844. It contains 548 entries, of which 288 are baptisms, 124 marriages, and 136 burials. Of the men who were married, sixty-nine were residents of Bertie, twenty-three of Humberstone, nine of Willoughby, four of Wainfleet and nineteen of other places. Eighteen persons signed the register in German script and sixty-two others by affixing their mark, of whom a majority were women. Of those buried not less than forty four, or almost one third, were children under the age of two years, and thirteen others were between the ages of two and ten. Several accidental deaths are recorded; one of a man found dead on Strawberry Island, another of a young man accidentally drowned at Port Colborne, a third of a soldier of the Third Battalion of Incorporated Militia, drowned at Fort Erie, and a fourth of another soldier of the same regiment, who died according to the verdict of a coroner's jury "by the visitation of God."

Despite the hardships, privations, and toil of their lives, a notable number of these early settlers lived many years. Thus Hannah Haun died at the age of seventy two, William Smith at seventy-five, Andrew Miller at seventy-seven, Jacob Huffman at seventy-eight, John Lount and Benjamin Wintermute at eight-one, John House and John Laur at eighty-three, John Near at eighty-four, Magaret Benner at eighty-five, Peter Wintermute at eighty-seven, James Burns was upwards of ninety and David Baxter nearly one hundred. Several unusual names will be noted, such as Brokenbough, Jerety, and Jomelaton.

These were troubled years, and as in other church registers, some slight reflection of these troubles is found recorded in its pages. The agitation for the secularization of the clergy reserves had gained great strength, but in the hard-fought general election of 1836 a majority of the conservative candidates had triumphed. A long and bitter wrangle in parliament and in the press culminated in an armed insurrection which was quickly overcome by the loyal militia. From December, 1837 to July, 1838, the deserted and dilapidated barracks at Fort Erie and other hastily improvised quarters at Waterloo were occupied by the "Queen's Niagara Fencibles," recruited and commanded by Colonel Kerby, in constant apprehension of an invasion from the opposite shore. After its disbandment, detachments of the sedentary militia were called out for the defence of the frontier. These were relieved by the 10th Provisional Battalion, also recruited and commanded by Colonel Kerby, which garrisoned Fort Erie and Waterloo from November, 1838, until May, 1839. During these periods the Reverend John Anderson performed the duties of chaplain. The following certificate to that effect has survived.


Head Quarters
Fort Erie, 17th Jany. 1838.

"I Certify upon honor that there are stationed and in Garrison, upwards of Six hundred Men, including a Company of [the] 24th Regiment-Incorporated Militia and the Second Lincoln, &c., &c., who voluntarily receive the services of the Rev'd John Anderson Clergyman of the Parish, and for whom Accomodation is provided in St. Paul's Church on Sundays & Holidays and duties performed under my direction as Colonel Commanding by the said Reverend John Anderson, Rector of Fort Erie and request the usual Allowance.

James Kerby
Colonel Com'g at
Fort Erie Garrison.


On its disbandment the 10th Provisional Battalion was replaced by small detachments of the 1st and 3rd Incorporated Militia, who continued on duty until the midsummer of 1840. Births, marriages, and deaths in all these regiments are duly recorded.

The cessation of internal and foreign conspiracies to overthrow the government was succeeded by an epidemic of smuggling from the United States, which Colonel Kerby's energetic exertions as collector of customs did not always succeed in checking, and on at least one occasion required the support of a detachment of soldiers to enforce a seizure. Popular sympathy was largely on the side of the smugglers, who often crossed Lake Erie on the ice.

It will be noted that several entries were never fully completed, this being probably deferred for further information and then overlooked. The registers of the church for the later period, 1844 to 1864, have disappeared.

My best acknowledgements are due to Reverend William Burt, the present rector of Fort Erie, for permission to transcribe this register and to J. H. Ingersoll, K.C., of St. Catharines, Chancellor of the Diocese of Niagara, for helpful information respecting the establishment of the rectory.

The following documents show the procedure followed in the establishment of the rectory of Waterloo and the induction of the rector.
