Also see . . . John Stuart. His contribution to the religious development of the Kingston area cannot be overestimated. He started the first school west of the Ottawa River, initially in his home, then in a government building. Later a grammar school was opened in which his son George was the first teacher. At the beginning, church services were held in the barracks and then in a new church, known as St George’s, built in 1792 and twice enlarged.
