“Hi there,
I was wondering if someone at the museum might know details about the church´s rebuilding in 1840. (originally built c. 1775 in Maugerville). There seems to be a dearth of solid info on questions like:  why was it rebuilt ?  How closely does it resemble the 1775 church ?  Was the original structure simply remodeled, or was it built from scratch in 1840 ?  How much of the original church, if anything, got re-used in the rebuild ??

Any details would be greatly appreciated.


One of my board members responded with the following:
“I was put in touch with someone who had the following information.

The original church was built in Maugerville in 1775.  It could seat 500 people.  It was decided to move the building to Sheffield in 1789 (100 oxen needed).  The building deteriorated so they decided to rebuild in 1840,  salvaging what they could use from the original building.  It is not an exact replica but it does incorporate some of the original design.  It was dedicated in 1842.”

Reply from Mark:
“I guess what I was really asking was whether the Sheffield church was essentially a 1775 building that was slightly remodelled, or, an 1840 structure that merely used some fragments from the previous church. The answer to that question is of great importance to NB b/c there are only two 18th c. churches in the whole province(as far as <I know).  And it would be the only pre-Revolutionary church in the province (and one of the few extant pre-Revolutionary buildings in NB, period.). I wonder if there was ever any dendrochronology done on the church ? And I wonder just how much of the original church was used in the 1840 rendition?

I did read the book mentioned in one of your emails (John Leroux – about a year or two ago).  My memory is fading on that book but I seem to remember the author using the word remodelled when he described the church. The use of the word “remodelled” is a bit unfortunate in that the reader is still left trying to figure out what that really means – hence my questions about the crux of the church’s origins. To me, “remodelled” seems like a term used to signify relatively minor changes, and not a total rebuilding of something.

I look forward to learning more about the built heritage of NB, and >I am especially interested in any surviving pre-Loyalist heritage that still may exist. “

The Old Church at Maugerville (Sunbury Co.) On the site where now stands the Episcopal Church at Maugerville, there stood, some thirty years ago, an old Episcopal Church, said to be the first Protestant Church erected in New Brunswick. For many years this was the only Church in Maugerville. Later came the Baptist Church. The Congregational and Methodist Churches were in the adjoining parish of Sheffield. … One rector Rev. John SAYRE died in 1794. (see original) SUN Jan. 24 – Your correpondent is indebted to postamaster W.H. BENT and James H. CLARK for the information hereunto appended. It may be noticed as far as traditionally known as the first superstructure of the Church in question was of logs; and about the year 1787, a more substantial structure of the Church was put up upon which repairs were made in 1792, which date we get from J.H. Clark, who now has in his possesion the old copper weather-cock, iron spindle and shaft made and placed upon the Church at that time by his grandfather. The inscription reads thus: ‘Made by Alexander CLARK, for Christ’s Church, Maugerville, 1792. It may be here mentioned that Alexander Clark was one of the first vestry men and Col. DEPEYSTER one of the first wardens of this Church. Our informant claims that his father William CLARK worshipped in all three of those Churches, which have the longest continuity upon the same sight of any in the Province. The first rector of this old Episcopal Churchn was Rev. John Sayre. And herewith is a true copy of what is inscribed upon an ash cross about 4 1/3 feet high: ‘Here Lies the Body of the Rev. John Sayre – formerly Rector of Trinity Church, Fairfield, Connecticut and one of society’s missionaries to that place, from thence refugee with his family within His Majesty’s lines in New York and from New York, upon the evacuation of it by British troops to this place; who departed this life at Burton on the St. John River, upon the 5th of August, in the year of Our Lord, 1784, in the 47th year of his age. The next rector was Rev. John BEARDSLEY, a graduate of Parr Town, who after a time went to Kings Co. and died there. J.H. Clark took up his residence here in 1884, a lapse of 91 years from the time his grandfather left. He learned that the old Church edifice had been sold to Eben HORTON of Boston. The material which went into Mr. Horton’s buildings, where he found the old trophy now in his possession, which was 100 years old last July. In the Church yard we find an irregular field stone, upon the west side of which was cut, ‘B. CARMAN, died 29th Jan. 1793, aged 8 years 2 mos.’ (see original) (see also SUN Jan. 5 – The Old Maugerville Church)

A call came to the York Sunbury Museum office not long ago from a gentleman in Ontario asking about Ichabod Smith in Maugerville.  I haven’t been able to find too much information about him but I don’t have a lot of time to devote to research.  I don’t think this gentleman was looking for birth, death and marriage information but for more detailed information about the early settlement of his ancestors in Maugerville.  If anyone can help, please leave your comments here!  Thanks!
