St James' Anglican, St Marys, Ontario

St James' Anglican, St Marys, Ontario
St Marys, Ontario was established when a sawmill and a grist-mill were erected in 1841-43. Anglicans first meetings were at the mill.

One account of the naming of St Marys is that during a visit in 1845 Bishop John Strachan's daughter Mary proposed a donation of £10 for a new school if St Marys were adopted as the official name of the settlement. The school was built and the Anglican congregation met regularly there. Anglican Church Window, St Marys, Ontario

St James' Anglican, St Marys, Ontario was built in 1858 of local limestone. Originally a simple rectangular building, the roof was raised and the tower and chancel built in 1885.

In 1907, the parish hall was built next to the church. Shown is a window in the parish hall in memory of William Veal Hutton who had died the previous year and was the second owner of the grist-mill.
