Description

The St. Philip\'s church yard was formally consecrated by the Bishop of Toronto, the Right Reverend John Strachan, in 1841. However there is evidence from the parish records and the tombstones that burials had occurred much earlier. Some of these records suggest that the cemetery was in use as early as 1825. The cemetery is still active and is administered by St. Philip\'s Anglican Church.\n\nIn 1857 Thomas Musson and his wife, Ann Smart, gave an additional one and one-half acres to enlarge the burial grounds. The wooden church burned to the ground in 1875 and the congregation was forced to attend St. John\'s in Weston until the new brick building was completed on the original site in 1894. In 1876 Edward J. Musson and his wife, Mary Jane Taylor, sold one-quarter acre to the parish for $50.00, to provide grounds for a church shed.\n\nThe original part of the churchyard was laid out in a grid pattern with drives and walks to separate the tiers of plots. Most of this pattern is not visible today.\n\nIn 1935 William Rein Wadsworth offered, for $1.00, the parcel of land that lay between St. Philip\'s Churchyard and Dixon Road to be used to enlarge the cemetery. This land was consecrated in 1953 by Bishop Beverly. The land was called the \"Wadsworth Annex\" as a memorial to William Rein Wadsworth the First.
