    History - Moncton First Baptist Church
    The first Baptist Church in Moncton (West. Co.) appears to have been organized as a result of a religious awakening about the year 1827 in which the following, embracing a large portion of the then population of the Bend were baptized: Israel POWELL, John POWELL, Wm McKENZIE, David MILLS, Gilbert STULTZ, Abraham STULTZ, James LEWIS, Patrick RITCHIE, Wm RITCHIE, Mathias SOMERS, Aaron PORTER, John HORSMAN, Richard SHEA, Samuel MILLS, Elizabeth POWELL, Elizabeth STULTZ, Amy SOMERS, Eunice RITCHIE, Mary LEWIS, Susanna LEWIS, Mary CONSTANTINE, Harriet PRINCE, Rebecca MILLS, Hannah STEADMAN, Elizabeth STULTZ, Mary Colpitts, Mary DOWNING, Esther PORTER. It is noted in the minutes that the ages of these converts ranged from Elizabeth Powell, aged 82 years to Harriet Prince, age 10. The above mentioned converts with Wm Colpitts, Peter MILLS, Thos. PRINCE, Andrew STEEVES, John MILLS, Wm STEADMAN, sr., Jas. F. GOULDRUP, Elizabeth Colpitts, Catherine TRITES, Sarah PRINCE, Elizabeth STEEVES, Jane LEAMAN, Alice LEAMAN, Deborah MILLS and Charlotte McKENZIE, dismissed from the Salisbury Church, appear to comprise the full original membership of what is now known as the Moncton First Baptist Church. The organization was elected June 8th, 1828 by the late Rev. Joseph CRANDALL and late Rev. James WALLACE, the former, grandfather of postmaster, Joseph CRANDALL of Moncton. The deacons were William Colpitts, Thos. Prince and Peter Mills. The clerk was Rev. James F. Gouldruo whose death was recorded a few months ago. The church was received into the N.B. Baptist Assoc. in July 1829. There is a record April 29th, 1847 to the effect that Sister Ann BECK died at the Bend on Thursday afternoon. (see original for history of church)

    Research Notes:
    There are differences in the birth order for William's children in the various sources notably [Chipman, 1966], [Colpitts, 1967] and [Hoar, 1988] regarding the birth order, number of children and spouses. (See also the additional note for Elizabeth Colpitts [code: Co-5-3]). The order presented in this document is based on their birth dates combined from all sources.

    Christening information from extracted birth and christening record for Haughton Le Skerne, Durham County, England., found in International Genealogical Index 4.01, British Isles, Batch number: C035942, Mormon Family Genealogy Records, Salt Lake City. [Orr, 1999]

    Note that source [CLDS, 1999] lists a "Jean Colpitts" as a daughter of William. It shows Jean as being born "about 1802" in England with ancestral file #12HL-94K. This does not appear to be a valid entry based on birth date and other inconsistent information.
