ANGLICAN CHURCHES IN WESTFIELD PARISH
|St James Church (Church of England / Anglican),
Westfield, Kings County, NB (photo)
St James Church church was built to replace the old St. Peters Church, which I believe was either on the grounds of, or near the cemetery, at Woodman's Point. It is a fairly young church, and has only a small cemetery on the adjoining ground. Although it is still in use, it now has a very small congregation. The records available for Westfield: Church Records, 1797-1953 (F1096) extend into St James Church time.

of England / Anglican) Westfield and Greenwich
St Peters Church was at Woodman's Point. Their records cover both Westfield and Greenwich, as well as a few records for the Anglican Church that was in Headline, Queens County listed as Welsford. There are also a few scattered records of people from Kingston Parish. This building was believed to have been situated slightly above the Saint John River in the lower half of what is now just the cemetery, and indeed there was for many years a rough area that could well be the old building site.
Greenwich & Westfield Anglican Church Records | A transcribed index, which has NOT been proofread after completion. (see below) Use as an index ONLY.| PANB - Westfield: Church Records, 1797-1953 (F1096)These parish records were combined in the originals, and in most cases are only identified by the residence section of the entries. At this point in time I cannot remember if the Welsford records were combined into my recording. Those marked "copies of" were not checked against the others. There are also some missing records from the group that were indexed. cbb
