The Parish Register of Kingston, Upper Canada, 1785 - 1811
The Parish Register of Kingston, Upper Canada, 1785 - 1811. A. H. Young. (1931)
This is a complete copy of Prof. Young's original 1921 publication, not just a transcription of the entries for births, marriages and funerals. As well as an exact copy of this important genealogy data AND all of Prof. Young's extensive explanatory and interpretation notes on the registrations, there is a long introduction telling the story of the establishment of the Church of England in Upper Canada and, in particular, that of Dr. John Stewart, the first rector. This naturally also leads to the story of the establishment of the first church, St. George's. Most, if not all of those involved in establishing the church are mentioned by name, "notes" being provided describing the contributions of the First Benefactors.
Of course the primary value of this book is that it contains a transcript of the first church records kept in the (now) province of Ontario.
