St Georges Church Of England Sorell Tasmania


The foundation stone for St. George’s was laid in 1825 was built by convict labour and dedicated in 1827.  When it was completed it had a seating capacity of 600 with galleries which were used by convicts to keep them separate from the general population.  

By 1883 it was thought the original building was unsafe and a Mr. C. Quinn was contracted to build a new church.  

The adjoining cemetery shows the name of many of the earliest settlers in the area many of the names are still known in the area today.  

Many of our Kent, Featherstone, Wiggins and associated families are buried in this churchyard.
