Plaque Text

The first Anglicans of Adolphustown were Loyalists who arrived in 1784. Early services were conducted at the home of Nicholas Hagerman by the Rev. John Langhorn who, from 1787 to 1813, was the resident missionary for the Townships of Ernesttown and Fredericksburgh. In 1822 a frame church named St. Paul's was built, which still stands just west of this site. In that year Adolphustown became a mission, and its first resident clergyman, the Rev. Job Deacon, served until 1850. The present church of St. Alban-the-Martyr, erected 1884-88, was built through public subscriptions as a memorial to the Loyalists of the area.

I, too, am a direct descendant of Abraham Maybee. There are a number of historical plaques along the shorelines of Lakes Erie and Ontario that bear reference to this very storied family of United Empire Loyalists.

My great(x6) grandfather Capt. Abraham Maybee, was a member of the original congregation of St. Albans the Martyr Anglican Church, or the Loyalists Memorial Church, as it is known today. I am visiting the area this summer and look forward to seeing personally the plaque you have so graciously shared here.
