Anglicans in 19th Century Sebringville, Ontario

Trinity Church, at Sebringville, was organized by Rev. E. Patterson, Anglican minister at Stratford, in 1875.   Its principal promoters were Messrs. Pearson, Coulton, Hamilton, Moore. and Ruston, who opened a mission in 1872. At its organization as a congregation there was a membership of 30 which, in 1902 had increased to 70.   In 1887 a comfortable building was erected at a cost of $1,400, where Rev. D. Deacon, now pastor, holds service.   There is a good Sabbath school in connection with the church, under Mrs. Mason as superintendent, having an average attendance of between 30 and 40 pupils.
