  • Notes 
    • Primitive Methodist Church

      Begun: c.1843 Closed: c.1865

      Primitive Methodist meetings may have begun as early as 1843 when the congregation was on the Guelph-Galt Primitive Methodist Circuit, but it is unknown just exactly when a congregation was officially organized. At the First Annual Conference of the Primitive Methodist Connexion, Canada West, at Brampton 27 April-1 May 1854, the Galt Mission was in the Hamilton District; the pastor at the time was the Rev. John Davison. Galt was a separate Mission until 1858 when it was joined with Blenheim for several years.
