  • Notes 
    • The Session Records of Chalmers Church, Winterbourne, or rather Woolwich, as it was first called, give very little information of interest to us, being mostly statements of times of holding the Communion Services. We glean a few things from them: The Rev. George Cuthbertson, a graduate of Knox College, Toronto, was called, ordained and inducted into the charge of Chalmers' Church, Woolwich, in October of 1857, but no record is given of the event in the Session Records. A new book had been purchased and date entered Oct. 1st, 1857, and a few pages left blank, probably for such an entry to be made but they remain blank and the first entry is Dec. 31st, 1857, and from the entry of Jan. 29th, 1858, we learn the members of Session were (William) Gerrie, (William) Mitchell, (John) Burnett, and (John) Glennie, along with the Moderator, Rev. George Cuthbertson. On 30th Sept, 1859, there was brought before the Session the movement for the union of the Free Church and the United Presbyterian Churches. Some objection was taken to the basis of union by the Session. Aug. 6th, 1860, Mr. John Burnett ceases to be an elder of the church.

      During the vacancy the Rev. W. S. Ball was interim Moderator, but. only one Session Record is entered, that of Jan. 25th, 1864, more than two years after Mr. Cuthbertson had left. And the next Record is Dec. 28th of that year 1864, which is the first record of Rev. C. Graham, which shows that he was settled in the fall of 1864. The members of Session besides himself were William Mitchell, James Law, Wm. Veitch, John Glennie and James Adamson. The Records of Jan. 23rd, 1865, name the Church Chalmers' Church, Winterbourne, for the first time, and this Record notes the death of elder Wm. Mitchell, who had been elder before the disruption and having identified himself with the Free Church party he continued in that relationship to the Church, holding the office for over twenty years. In 1865 the Presbyterian Church in Hawksville was organized as a separate congregation, connected with Winterbourne. The Minutes of Oct. 5th, 1865, record the death of elder John Glennie, so that the church was deprived of two of its leading office bearers, by death, in that year. Mr. Glennie was a member of Session at the settlement of Mr. Cuthbertson, so his ordination and induction were previous to that. At the Session of April 6th, 1868, the movement for a separate congregation in Elmira was brought before them by petition signed by 21 members and 20 adherents and asking for fortnightly service. There had been occasional services long before this, both in Elmira and Hawkesville. One of the old members in Elmira told of Mr. Alexander, student preacher in 1849, preaching in Elmira. And Mr. Cuthbertson preached in Hawkesville.
