 St Matthews Anglican New Norfolk

The early Church which was erected in 1823 by David Lambe in 1823 was used as a schoolhouse and chapel mainly by the Norfolk Islanders who formed a large part of the congregation.  

When Robert Knopwood retired at Hobart in 1825 he went to live at New Norfolk and it was the inhabitants of New Norfolk who requested that he be appointed to St. Matthews.

He was duly appointed but for some reason had restrictions applied to his duties, he wasn’t allowed to baptize children or perform marriage ceremonies.   

It was left to The Reverend Hugh Robinson to perform these duties.  

Perhaps one of the most well known marriages in early colonial times was performed at St. Matthew’s and that was between Norah Cobben (ex convict) and Jorgen Jorgenson, convict,naval officer, police superintendent, explorer and self styled King of Iceland.  

Today St. Matthew’s with its beautiful stained glass windows would be one of the most well known churches in the Derwent Valley .
