Henry Scadding (1813-1901)
Henry Scadding
the Rev'd Henry Scadding was born in Devonshire, England, and came to Upper Canada in 1821. Educated at Upper Canada College and Cambridge University, he was ordained to the Anglican priesthood at St. James Church, Toronto, in 1838, and the same year became Master of Classics at Upper Canada College. In 1847 Scadding was appointed first rector of the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity, where he served until 1875.

The town house where he lived from its completion in 1862 until his death is now an Ontario Heritage site.

Scadding, a noted scholar, wrote numerous religious, literary, and historical works, including his best-known books, "Toronto of Old" (1873) and, in collaboration with J.C. Dent, "Toronto: Past and Present" (1884). Largely through his efforts the Ontario Historical Society, originally called the Pioneer Association of Ontario, was established on September 4, 1888.
