Administrative history

The history of All Saints' church begins with the arrival of Rev. William Leeming in 1820 in the Drummondville area. In 1830 Rev. F.W. Miller arrived to assist Rev. Leeming. Around 1836 the two clergymen had a falling out, resulting in Rev. Miller erecting a "chapel of ease", St. George's on Main Street. The new chapel drew parishioners from Holy Trinity, Chippawa, as well from Rev. Leeming's followers. Following Rev. Miller's death in 1847, Caroline Miller, his sister, deeded St. George's to Rev. Leeming. That structure was taken down and a new All Saints' church was built on Robinson Street in 1856. Robinson and Main Streets intersect. The dedication of the Robinson Street church took place on 1 November 1857 which consecration following on 19 July 1863 with the Bishop of Toronto officiating. For a more complete history see the pamphlet All Saints Church (1990) in Envelope 3 of the fonds.
