History

A. W. Sillitoe was the first Bishop of New Westminster (1879-1894). Born in 1840 at Sydney, Australia, educated at Cambridge, England, chaplain to the British legation at Darmstadt and tutor to the Princess Alice, A.W. Sillitoe was called in the prime of his life (at the age of 39) to organize the Anglican communities on the British Columbia Lower Mainland and the southern interior. His wife, Violet E. Sillitoe, assisted and accompanied him during hard journeys throughout the province and played a vital role for Christianity in the coast's pioneer days. Violet, beloved through the province, died in 1934, in Vancouver.
