Lists of material in the Archives
Percy Walter Gledhill, church and local historian, was a foundation member of the Church of England Historical Society and the Society of Australian Genealogists. His publications document the histories of several Sydney churches.
Samuel Marsden (1765-1838), ordained in 1793, married Elizabeth Fristan before leaving for Australia to take up an appointment as Assistant Chaplain to N.S.W. in March 1794. In 1804 Marsden was appointed Resident Agent and Supervisor of the London Missionary Society's operations in the South Seas. In 1810 he was made Principal Chaplain to N.S.W., a position he held until 1824 when the position of Archdeacon was created. Marsden's agricultural contribution to the nation was reflected in his appointment as leader of the Agricultural Society of N.S.W. Marsden died in Windsor, N.S.W. in 1838. This collection contains Marsden’s sermon manuscripts.
