Administrative history

In 1869, Reverend C.W. Patterson was appointed to Bobcaygeon, Ontario. Previous to 1869, a sum of money had been collected and deposited in the Peterborough branch of the Bank of Toronto as a building fund for the construction of an Anglican Church in Bobcaygeon. It was decided in the same year that enough money had been collected and that a new church and parsonage should be built. Architect John E. Belcher was contracted to design and build the church and parsonage in 1870. On January 5, 1871, Christ Church was formally opened by the Lord Bishop of Toronto.

Custodial history

Copies of these records were originally created for Mossom Boyd and have been photocopied from the Boyd Papers, at the Library and Archives Canada. Reverend E.L. Straker obtained copies of the records and donated them to the Trent University Archives.
