  • Fonds
  • 1771, 1787-1837

Fonds consists of an Act Book, also entitled "..Register of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and its Dependeces", kept from the time of Bishop Charles Inglis' consecration in 1787 until 18 September 1810. The book contains the names and particulars of men he ordained to the ministry and which parish the minister was licensed to serve in. There is a gap in the book until 1825-1826 when it was kept by his son, Bishop John Inglis, who also included additional notes, 1829-1837. The Act Book also contains rough copies of letters and documents drafted by Charles Inglis before they were forwarded to the addressee, usually officers of state, the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, and two letters written by John Inglis when he acted as commissary to his father. There are also copies of documents by Charles Inglis relating to the proposal to consecrate bishops for the United States, copies of letters he wrote to the commission appointed by Parliament in London stating the losses he sustained as a Loyalist, and a copy of the deed of endowment of St. Pauls Church, Halifax, 1771.
