Protestants of Isle Madame

The January 1852 church census was transcribed by Stirling Edwards in September 2004, from the records of St. John’s Anglican Church, Arichat.

This list is among the papers of the Rev. James Allen Shaw, the first Rector of St John’s. It is dated about the time of his retirement in 1851. It is equivalent to a full nominal census of all non-Catholics on Isle Madame, almost 20 years before the first official nominal census in 1871.
