Name of creator
In 1840, three Wesleyan Methodist Missionaries were sent from England, to Moose Factory, to bring the Gospel to the Indians of the region. Reverend George Barnley, one of the three missionaries, made the fort at Moose Factory the centre of his eight year ministry, where he built St. Thomas Church (later St. Thomas Anglican Church). When this mission was closed by the Methodists in 1848, it was vacant for several years before the Church Missionary Society of the Church of England sent Reverend John Horden to Moose Factory in 1851. He later became the first Bishop of the diocese of Moosonee in 1872. He died in Moosonee in 1893.
The fonds was made available for microfilming by the Archives of Ontario by Right Reverend J.A. Watton, Anglican Bishop of Moosonee, Schumacher, Ontario and a copy of the microfilm was purchased by the Trent University Archives from the Archives of Ontario.
