Name of creator
Around 1856, the Roxton French Methodist Mission was organized by Reverend Thomas Charbonnel. It then embraced within its bounds Acton, Bolton, Stukely, Magog, and Stanstead. The mission, which may have been referred to as the Bethel Mission, was apparently discontinued at the beginning of the 20th century. Roxton French Mission was part of the Montreal Conference of the Methodist Church of Canada.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on church management and the congregation's affairs for the Roxton French Methodist Mission from 1877 to 1974. It also includes information on the Lawrenceville Circuit. It consists of minutes, registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials, historical sketches. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Church Boards (1885-1905), Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials (1877-1915), and Historical (1974).
