Administrative history

Land was purchased in Dunnville, Ont. to build a church in 1836. Rev. Bold Cudmore Hill was appointed Grand River Missionary in 1838, making his headquarters between Cayuga and Caledonia on the Grand River at York. A church building was erected in Dunnville in 1843, the year that Rev. Adam Townley was appointed as the first rector. He also served as rector of the churches in Port Maitland and South Cayuga. In 1887 a new church was built under Rev. Percy Smith, the last rector to have the three churches under his care. For a more complete history see Rev. F.H. Wase, A History of the Parish of St. Paul. Christ Church in Port Maitland was built around 1841. The church in South Cayuga was built in 1843-1844. Consecration followed in June 1846 with Bishop Stracham presiding. For a more complete history see History of the Church of St. John the Evangelist, South Cayuga, Ontario. All four churches were served by one rector at various time periods. Records for all churches are inter-mixed within the same parish ledgers.
