History

Reverend Thomas Shaw Chapman was born in Melbourne, Quebec on January 10th, 1824. He was ordained a priest in Quebec City in 1849. He arrived in Dudswell Township on January 1st, 1849 as an itinerant missionary. He undertook the building of St. Paul's Anglican church in Marbleton in 1850, it being the oldest church in all of Dudswell Township. He married his cousin Jane Green Early at St. George's Church, Lennoxville on June 2nd, 1851. They had five children between 1853 and 1866. Rev. Chapman involved himself in the school system and founded the Marbleton Model School in 1870 under the auspices of the Church Society. Rev. Chapman proposed a plan of construction linking a railway system from Lime Ridge to the Quebec Central Railway, which the engineers eventually used and as a result he was assigned the directorship of the company. His wife Jane died in 1886. They are both buried in the Marbleton Anglican Cemetery.
