    Administrative history

    St. Edward's Presbyterian Church, Beauharnois, Quebec was established as a united charge with St. Andrew's, Chateauguay, in 1833. The first minister, the Rev. Walter Roach, was called through the Glasgow Colonial Society. In 1844 the congregation remained in connection with the Church of Scotland but about half the congregation left to form a separate congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Canada ("Free Church"). Following the Disruption the congregation at St. Louis was served by the minister of St. Edward's until 1851. The united charge of Beauharnois and Chateauguay was separated in 1907.
