St Pauls Montrose

In 1846 the Reverend John Yarker purchased land on which the church still stands from Gamaliel Butler for the sum of twenty four pounds and a small wooden church was built and named St. Mary Magdalene Chapel which served the public from 1846 until 1869  

In 1869 St. Mary Magdalene was demolished and the foundation stone for St. Paul ’s as we know it today was laid.  The church was designed by architect Francis Butler and the new building was consecrated on the 22nd June 1870.

A vestry was added in 1902 a chancel in 1926 and the porch was added in 1927.  At that time the rectory and hall were directly across the road but have since been located next to the Church.  

Tragedy haunts the roadway below the church for one day in 1940 the seven year old son of the rector was run over and killed.  Was it coincidence…. his brother, also aged seven, lost his life on the same spot and in the same manner in 1947.  

The connection of St Paul’s to our family being most of the Tilyard family are buried here including the patriarch of the Tilyard family in Australia and New Zealand, convict Thomas Tilyard and his wife Harriet whose grave still stands under the oak tree at the left hand side of the church.
