Excerpt from The Revd; John Stuart, D. D., U. E. L., Of Kingston, U. C. And His Family: A Genealogical Study

This little study of the distinguished Stuart family, founded by the Revd. John Stuart, D.D., of Kingston, has grown out of researches for a Life of Bishop Strachan, who called him "my spiritual father." Perusal of original letters to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, together with the Society's Journals and Annual Reports from 1770 to 1812, gives one a good idea of "the little gentleman," as he was called, notwithstanding his six feet four inches, even before he left the Province of New York in 1781.

Other sources of information regarding this first missionary of the Church of England in Upper Canada, from 1785 to 1811, are found in Dr. O'Callaghan's Documentary History of the State of New York; the Revd. Ernest Hawkin's Historical Notices of the Missions of the Church of England in the North American Colonies previous to the Independence of the United States; the same writer's Annals of the Colonial Church (Diocese of Toronto); Dr. Strachan's Memorial Sermon; his Christian Recorder; the Journal of his first visitation of the Diocese of Toronto; and Dr. Canniff's Settlement of Upper Canada. There is also a very appreciative reference to Dr. Stuart in a manuscript left by the late Bishop Richardson, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, which, through the kindness of the latter's grandson, Mr. J. R. Roaf, K.C. I have been allowed to use in editing Dr. Stuart's Parish Register, which is presently to appear.
