  • Notes 
    • Rev. John King came to Galt in 1856 representing the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland. He called upon local families in connection with that denomination and a preaching service was decided upon. The following year one hundred and thirty-five people were enrolled in Rev. King's new congregation which was designated as the United Presbyterian Church, Galt, but more popularly known as the Melville church. Rev. King agreed to act as minister for nine weeks until a new minister could be called. In the autumn of 1857 a new church building was erected on the corner of Blair Road and Metcalfe St. In 1861, the church was formally designated the Second Canada Presbyterian Church when the United Presbyterian Church in Canada united with the Presbyterian Church of Canada. Rev. King was replaced by Rev. John James and later moved to St. James Square Presbyterian Church in Toronto. He was later appointed by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada as Principal of Manitoba College in Winnipeg where he died on March 5, 1899.1a
