Ms. Eunice Streeter

Dear Mrs. Streeter,

Further to our telephone conversation of April 17, 1997 enclosed please find the baptism records of the three Stutt girls as requested. They were located in the early parish records of Peter's, Cobourg. Interestingly, AN. Bethune was the officiant at all three and I have included a couple of brief biographical notes about him for your information.

I hope that this information will be of assistance.

Yours sincerely,
Mary-Anne Nicholls (Mrs.)

BETHUNE, ALEXANDER Neil
(1800-1879)


ALEXANDER NEIL BETHUNE, son of Reverend John Bethune and of Veronica Wadden his wife, was born at Charlottenburg, U.C., August 28, 1800. He attended Dr. Strachan's school at Cornwall, and was later educated by the same master in theology. In 1823 he was ordained and licensed to Grimsby, a mission with several out-stations. In 1827 he was appointed to succeed the Reverend William Macaulay at Cobourg, and he remained in that parish for forty years. Here he helped to found and direct the Diocesan Theological Institution, forerunner of Trinity College, Toronto. He also edited The Church, and from 1847 to 1867 was archdeacon of York. In January, 1867, he was consecrated as coadjutor to the Bishop of Toronto, with the title of Bishop of Niagara, but he himself became Bishop of Toronto on Strachan's death in November of the same year. He died February 3, 1879. He and his wife Jane Eliza Crooks had ten children. He published a Memoir of Bishop Strachan, Lectures on the Liturgy, pamphlets and sermons.
