Grace Anglican Church

BAPTISM INDEX (1849-1862) - Grace Anglican Church, Markham Village

In the early 1980s, the late Marion Keffer gave me a handwritten listing that she had extracted from the registers of Grace Anglican Church in Markham Village, Markham Township, York County.  Her primary purpose in compiling this information was to learn the occupations and residences of the men who baptised their children at Grace Church.  Although the following baptism list does not include the child's name or complete date of baptism, it does serve as an index to early baptisms at Grace Church.  Reproduced here are Marion's notes for Grace Church, Markham Village.  If you are interested in checking the registers of this congregation you should contact the Anglican Church of Canada, Diocese of Toronto, 125 Adelaide St., E., Toronto, ON  M5C 1L8.

Information below is set up in the following order - Parent's names; father's occupation; abode and baptismal date.
