Rev. Peter Bryce was born near Glasgow into a working-class Scotish family in 1869. He later became a Methodist clergyman after immigrating to Canada in 1903.

For most of his career he ministered to the skilled working-class community living around the railway neighbourhood of Earlscourt in Toronto.

He was one of the founding members of the Toronto Neighbourhood Workers Association and as its president between 1916 and 1919 he lobbied for mothers’ pensions.

Rev. Peter Bryce was a reform-oriented Methodist minister in the community of Earlescourt in Toronto, Ontario. Throughout his career he worked on social reform and was particularly well-known for his work with low-income families and for the cause of prohibition. He wrote numerous articles pertaining to the social conditions of Toronto’s working class and served as the Moderator of the United Church of Canada from 1936-1938.

Earlscourt 1910

The spiritual leader of the Earlscourt Community during these difficult times was the Rev. Peter Bryce. Each night, Bryce would trek through Earlscourt’s muddy streets, aided only by a lantern, and a pair of high boots. His visits were said to have offered hope and inspiration to many families.

Rev. Bryce died on December 1, 1950 in Ottawa

The history of the congregation goes back to a Sunday School class conducted in the open air in the summer of 1916 by Mrs. Gibson of Hope Methodist Church. (We have been well called, ‘a Child of Hope!’). In the fall a cottage was rented from a Mrs. Wolfe. Rev. Roscoe Smith took charge, and Rev. A.I. Terryberry of Hope Methodist Church visited.

In April 1918, the Methodist Union bought a lot at the corner of Gledhill and Lumsden, and a portable Mission Church was erected which opened May 5, 1918. (Mrs. Florence Simpson (nee Thorton) was number 13 of 13 original members.)

In later years, Rev. Ernest Rands looked back with affection on this little white frame building surrounded by scattered homes. The rural setting explains the importance of the Harvest Home service in those early days. This Church was known as the Gledhill Avenue Methodist Church. It was not always weatherproof as we hear of at least one service when umbrellas had to be used inside the building.

Adam Beck (later Sir Adam) founder of Hydro, held a meeting in this Church. It was packed. He was accompanied by his beautiful daughter.

Rev. J. Stoodley came September 1, 1918. He was rememberedin later yars as being fond of the stuttering song ‘K-K-K-Katie’,

Rev. R.C. Burton came in September 1920 and put on the drive for a new church which culminated in the purchase of four lots at the corner of Woodbine and McMichael (now known as Mortimer), and the laying of the cornerstone on October 8, 1921 by Mr. W.W. Hiltz, Controller of the City of Toronto.

The basement was excavated by Charles Thornton, brother of Mrs. Florence Simpson.

The Church was opened on New Year’s Day, 1922. Among the parishioners were Mr. and Mrs Slimmon, parents of Mr. Carl Slimmon, present custodian, who is thus a link with our early history.

The Church at thsi time was known as the Woodbine Heights Methodist Church.

Its first historian was Mr. W.C. Curtis, a copy of whose history was placed in the cornerstone.

Rev. Joseph R. Real came until June of 1923. He had been, for twenty-five years, a missionary in China.

The Church was ready for the next epoch of its history


This began September 3, 1923, with the coming of a very remarkable man, Rev. Peter Bryce, who is said to have ‘graced and room he entered’.

He had been instrumental in starting the Star Christmas Fund as far back as 1906, and now he put his great energiesinto building up this Church. His salary at first was only one hundred dollars a month. In November, twenty-five dollars was realized from a  lecture on Newfoundland by Rev. Archer Wallace, the well know Canadian autor, who was summer supply the next year.

In 1925, Rev Bryce founded the Woodbine Brotherhood and donated a set of Carpet Bowls. The same year Union was accomplished and the Church took up the name Woodbine Avenue United Church.

During the preceeding two years, congregations had grown five or six times, making necessary the reconstructionof the Church by adding wings to the original structure.

The cornerstone was laid on January 30, 1926 by Mrs. D.A. Dunlop who had contributed generously to the building fund.

Church architect was John Charles Batstone Horwood (1864-1938)

Evening services were held at the Prince of Wales Theatre with one thousand people attending.

Trustees of the Church were Thomas Munro, W. Thomas, Henry Slade (secretary of the Board and an outstanding layman), J. Craig, and Charles Courtney.

The address was given by the veryRev. George Pigeon, first Moderatorof the United Church, and the preacher of the evening service was Rev. James Endicott, also destined to be Moderator. Rev. Mr. Bryce, within ten years was to occupy the same high position.

While here, he lived at 358 Wolverleigh Blvd., which qualified it for title of ‘The Old Manse’. Up to the time of his death in 1950, he never forgot Woodbine and he came back often for special services. For many years he was Minister of Metropolitan United Church.

The land on which the church stands, was originally part of Lot 7 in the second concession from the Bay of York Township. It is of interest to note that this lot belonged as early as 1820 to Samuel Sinclair, no doubt the same man who gave the site of Don Mills Church, as related in the valuable history of that Church compiled by the Rev. J.C. McDonald and belonging to the same famous clan as Woodbine’s present Minister. …1974 Historical Notes by T.B. Higginson

WHITBY, an incorporated post town in Ontario County, Ontario, with a junction station on the G.T.R., 30 miles east of Toronto. The town is one mile from the junction, and has a harbour on Lake Ontario, and a branch line on the G.T.R. running northward to Manilla Jct. (33 miles distant). It has 6 churches (Roman Catholic, 2 Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist and Baptist), about 25 stores, 3 hotels, a tannery, buckle and 2 pump factories, besides 2 chartered banks (Dominion and Western), 2 printing and newspaper offices (“Ontario Gazette” and “Keystone”), besides telegraph and express offices. Pop. 2,339 …from Lovell’s 1906 Canada Gazetteer


Whitby Township (now the Town of Whitby) was named after the seaport town of Whitby, Yorkshire, England. In addition to Whitby, Yorkshire, the Town of Whitby is also officially twinned with Longueuil, Quebec and Feldkirch, Austria.

When the township was originally surveyed in 1792, the surveyor, from the northern part of England, named the townships east of Toronto after towns in northeastern England: York, Scarborough, Pickering, Whitby and Darlington. The original name of “Whitby” is Danish, dating from about 867 CE when the Danes invaded Britain. It is a contraction of “Whitteby,” meaning “White Village.” The allusion may be to the white lighthouse on the pier at Whitby, Yorkshire, and also at Whitby, Ontario.’ Although settlement dates back to 1800, it was not until 1836 that a downtown business centre was established by Whitby’s founder Peter Perry.

Whitby’s chief asset was its fine natural harbour on Lake Ontario, from which grain from the farmland to the north was first shipped in 1833. In the 1840s a road was built from Whitby Harbour to Lake Simcoe and Georgian Bay, to bring trade and settlement through the harbour to and from the rich hinterland to the north. The Town of Whitby was chosen as the seat of government for the newly formed County of Ontario in 1852, and incorporated in 1855. In the 1870s a railway, the “Port Whitby and Port Perry Railway”, was constructed from Whitby harbour to Port Perry, and later extended to Lindsay as the “Whitby, Port Perry and Lindsay Railway.”

Whitby is also the site of Trafalgar Castle School, a private girls’ school founded in 1874. The building, constructed as an Elizabethan-style castle in 1859–62 as a private residence for the Sheriff of Ontario County, is a significant architectural landmark and Whitby’s only provincial historic site marked with a plaque.

A black and white photograph of the interior of the Methodist Episcopal Church. There are several people sitting on the pews (benches) inside the church. The organ can be seen at the back of the church.

The Methodist Episcopal Church was located at the corner of Church and Albert Streets. It was also called the White Church. It was built in 1845 on the east side of Church Street. The Methodist Episcopal Church (White Church) amalgamated in 1884 with the Wesleyan Methodist and Bible Christian Churches. At that time the White Church was closed. The church building was used for a short time by the Salvation Army and in the 1880s or 90s was moved to the north east corner of Baldwin and Roebuck Streets and converted into stores. The building was demolished in the 1920s. The choir leader at the church was Mr. Wyatt.

Opening Up A New Chapel in Whitby

...from the British North American Wesleyan Methodist Magazine

Whitby, July 5, 1842.

Reverend and Dear Sir,

I transmit to you, for insertion in the Wesleyan, an account of the opening of the British Wesleyan-Methodist Chapel in Whitby.

On Sunday, the 3rd of July, the solemn and interesting services appropriate to the occasion were conducted by the Rev. M. Richey, A. M., who in two excellent sermons, directed the attention of the congregation to the foundation, structure and glory of the Christian Church, and to the necessity of strictly adhering to those doctrines which were first delivered to the saints.

The forenoon sermon was taken from Ephesians, 3rd chapter, and the 30th and two following verses :- ” And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together, groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord ; in whom ye also are bnilded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

The Rev. gentleman, during the progress of this discourse, insisted in strong and emphatic terms, that in order to be come lively stones in this spiritual edifice, it was essentially necessary to build upon the true corner stone – the living foundation – “Jesus Christ himself ;” he contended that there was no mediator between God and man but the man Christ Jesus, and that the apostles themselves were but instruments, Divinely inspired indeed, but at the same time they were only instruments in the promulgation of Gospel truth.

After exhorting the congregation to examine themselves whether they could lay any claim to the character of living and constituent portions of the Church of Christ, he concluded an admirable discourse, by observing that the person who built upon any other foundation, was like the man who built his house upon the sand, who when the rain descended, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, it fell, and great was the fall of it.

The sermon in the afternoon was a practical continuation of the one delivered in the morning ; it was founded on the 3d chapter of Acts, and 43d verse – “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.”

The chapel, both in the morning and afternoon, was densely crowded, and the congregation seemed to listen with deep interest to the word of truth. – After the close of each sermon, a collection was made to assist in defraying the expenses of the chapel ; a small portion of debt only, we are happy to state, remaining unpaid.

The opening of this chapel under such auspicious circumstances, forms a striking and delightful contrast to the state of the society in this place a year ago. At that period, there was no regular service at all, and but four individuals were united with us in Church fellowship, who attended divine service as often as practicable at Mr. Long’s chapel, four miles distant. But they were a faithful and united few; and though to all human appearance feeble in influence, as well as in numbers, yet they had power with Him who rules the universe. Often did they meet together and talk of the goodness of God, and unite in prayer for the Spirit’s influence upon the neighbourhood, and for a revival of the work of God. And in an especial manner did they pray, that believers might be watered by the refreshing showers of divine grace. God heard their prayers, and granted to them their hearts’ desire.

Preaching was established once a fortnight, first in a barn, and then in a dwelling house.

Numbers attended the ministry of the word, many of whom were brought to see the necessity of applying to Christ for pardon and remission of sins. It was indeed a lovely scene to witness those who had not only stood aloof from the cause of Christ, but had also persecuted and opposed us, presenting their broken, but fervent petitions before the throne of God, and crying in the language of the Publican,

” God be merciful to me a sinner.” If was truly delightful to see them stand before the faithful followers of Christ, acknowledge that God of a truth was among them, and say – ” This people shall be my people, and their God my God.”

During the month of February, of the present year, a protracted meeting was commenced, when there was a general turning to the Lord among all classes of the community, and numbers were they who for the purpose of ridicule “came to mock, but remained to pray.”

The meeting continued between two and three weeks; and during the whole of that period, in that inclement season of the year, and despite of the badness of the roads, night after night, the house was crowded to excess, and the people listened with profound interest to the messengers of truth.

At the conclusion of the meeting, between thirty and forty persons united with the society. Some of them, indeed, have lost their first love, and have turned back again to the beggarly elements of the world, but the greater part are rejoicing in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made them free – are walking under the smiles of his countenance, and pressing towards the heavenly Canaan with their faces thitherward.

May Almighty God preserve them, and “add unto the Church daily such as shall be saved.” – It is highly gratifying to be able to state, that we are to have a regular service in the new chapel every Sunday, and that several neighborhoods, both in Pickering and Whitby, are supplied with our Preaching.

“Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name be all the glory.”

I remain, respectfully your’s,

George Flint.

NewcastleMeth1867Newcastle was incorporated as a town in 1856. It remained a small community until the 1990s, when new residential development began and the population quickly swelled. Newcastle had a jail in the late 1800s. Maps of Newcastle from those years have not been discovered. Many have tried to find the location of this jail; however, it is believed that it was either demolished or had been destroyed by the elements. There are jail cells in the Newcastle Community Hall.

Newcastle is filled and surrounded by agriculture farms raising cattle, pigs, apples, grain, and corn. Newcastle has a beautiful community hall, donated by the Massey family, one public high school (Clarke), one public elementary school (Newcastle Public School), one Catholic elementary school (St. Francis of Assisi), a post office, churches, a few plazas, several small parks, six restaurants, Tim Hortons, a new recreation complex, an ice arena, fire hall, two grocery stores, professional offices, hardware stores, a marina on Lake Ontario, and a golf course

The first Post office was opened in Newcastle in 1845 with John Short serving as Postmaster. Since 1845, there had been a total of 10 Postmasters in the village- Charles Gray being the last in 1991.

  • Joseph E. Atkinson (December 23, 1865 – May 7, 1948) was a Canadian newspaper editor and activist. Under his leadership the Toronto Star became one of the largest and most influential newspapers in Canada.
  • Daniel Massey, whose farm implement business eventually formed Massey-Ferguson.
  • Early settlers using sticks and spears could catch as many as 100000 salmon in one night from streams running into Lake Ontario. One man who had a great influence on the village was Samuel Wilmot. He became interested in the salmon as early as 1860 and built a “fish hatchery” at Newcastle – one of the world’s first. Wilmot would eventually become head of fisheries for Canada, and in the 1890s he was running a small generating station which supplied Newcastle with its first electrical power – from sunset until about 12:00 midnight.…from Wikipedia.com

Town History

Settler John Binning arrived in 1857 and was the first to create a permanent residence in the area. The community was originally named Mapleton, but the name was changed when a post office was established. The new name was chosen by a government official and refers to Listowel, Ireland. The majority of early settlers were of Protestant Irish origin (Ulster Scots Planters, or English Planters). Incorporated in 1867 as a village and in 1875 as a town, Listowel is now part of the town of North Perth…from Wikipedia.com

Mount Brydges has a small commercial “downtown” featuring mostly local businesses and shops. Local agriculture includes maize, tobacco and wheat. The soil composition of the region is largely sandy (a phenomenon referred to locally as the “Caradoc Sand Plains”) as a result of deposits created on the bottom of the glacial Lake Whittlesey which covered the area approximately 13,000 years ago.

The village came into existence as a result of the construction of the western division of the Great Western Railroad from City of London, Ontario to Windsor, Ontario, at the point where it crossed the existing road from Delaware, Ontario to Strathroy. This crossing happened to be at the point of greatest elevation on this division, the railroad having just climbed out of the valley of the Thames River from London. The station was named for Charles John Brydges the Managing Director of the Railroad. Contrary to a previous suggestion the name had nothing to do with an early settler named Mount, who had left the area more than two decades earlier.…from Wikipedia.com

Delaware History
The first white settlement of Middlesex County was here, in the old hunting grounds of the Huron and Mississauga peoples. Ronald McDonald patented the land on which Delaware Village stands in 1798. He sold it to Dr Oliver Tiffany, whose brother Gideon arrived in 1802 to plan the village, the old village just north of the present village. The present village was established in 1832 when Henry Rawlings built the first house, which also housed the first hotel, known as the Western Hotel. This stood on the south side of Commissioner’s Road.
