Name of creator
This collection was assembled by W.O. Raymond in 1878 to assist researchers working on the early years of the Anglican Church in New Brunswick.
Charles Inglis (1734-1816) was born in Ireland and immigrated to America as a young man. He entered the ministry in 1759 and rose to become Rector of Trinity Church, New York. Because of his strong Loyalist leanings, he fled to Nova Scotia in 1783. In 1787 he became the first Bishop of Nova Scotia, with oversight of all the Maritime churches. He travelled to New Brunswick in 1788,1790, 1792, 1798 and 1804.
His son, John Inglis (1777-1850), was born in New York and educated in Nova Scotia. In 1824 he became the third Bishop of Nova Scotia. He visited the churches under his care in New Brunswick in 1826 and approximately every three years thereafter until 1845 when the new Diocese of Fredericton was created.
The records in this collection were extracted from a microfilmed copy of the Inglis papers housed at the National Archives of Canada. The film had been given to the National Archives by the Archives of the Church of England at Lambeth Palace in London. Lambeth Palace had copied the originals in 1966, at which time they were in the possession of Admiral Sir John Inglis.

It contains the correspondence of Charles Inglis and John Inglis with their superiors in England and their missionaries (Anglican) in the field. There are also extracts from each man's journals.
