Dates of existence


In 1838, Sir Gabriel Wood and Lady Louisa Augusta Wood conveyed twenty-five acres of land in Springfield for a church in which "worship be performed according to the rites and ceremonies of the Church of England." Assisted by his seven sons, Thomas Haslam erected the St. Elizabeth Anglican Church in 1848. Dedicated in memory of Thomas Haslam's wife, the St. Elizabeth Anglican Church was consecrated in 1849, by Reverend John Medley, Bishop of Nova Scotia. Reverend J. Herbert Read was the first rector. Since its erection, the affairs of the church have been chiefly directed by a direct descendant of Thomas Haslam. Prior to 1848, the Anglican congregation of Springfield had to go to New London to worship.
