History

Reverend John Smithurst (b. 1801 - d. 1867) was appointed by the Church Missionary Society of England to its North West America Mission, and was later appointed as company chaplain at the Red River Settlement by the Hudson's Bay Company. He arrived in Rupert's Land in 1839 and served as company chaplain until 1840, when he reverted to serving solely as a missionary of the society. During this time he oversaw the mission extension at the Pas, in northern Manitoba, which was run by Reverend Henry Budd, who, at the time, was catechist and schoolmaster. Budd eventually became the first native minister in North America to be ordained by the Church of England
