St Marks Anglican Pontville

The following information is taken from the booklet

ďA Visitors Guide to this Historic ChurchĒ 

St. Markís was designed by the convict architect Blackburn.  James Blackburn was transported from England to Van Diemanís Land in 1833 for forgery.  As his academic qualifications were considerable he was attached to the Public Works Department and within a few years had proved his worth by drawing the plans for a number of churches and public buildings in Hobart and nearby districts.

Examples of his architecture are the churches of Holy Trinity Hobart, the Congregational Church at New Town, the Presbyterian Churches at Glenorchy and Sorell, and the portico and spire of St. Georgeís Battery Point.  He also drew the plans for the portico of the Public Buildings in Murray Street and most notable of all, Government House, which is said to have been built later almost exactly to Blackburnís original plans.

The design of the church is said to resemble in many respects a church near Lake Maggiore in Switzerland but in Tasmania, at any rate, it is unique, though architecturally it has affinities with at least two other Tasmanian churches one of which is the Presbyterian Church at Glenorchy and the other, the New Town Congregational Church.

The church was built by Joseph Moir who is probably the same man who built the Shot Tower near Kingston some thirty years later.  The cost, approximately $2,600 was raised by public subscription.  The beautiful white stone used in the building is found locally and is known as Brighton stone.

 As far as it is known the foundation stone, which unfortunately can no longer be seen, was laid by the Lieutenant Governor of Tasmania, Sir John Franklin, in 1839 and the building was completed in February 1841.  It was dedicated on the 21st February of that year by Archdeacon William Hutchins in whose memory Hutchins School was later founded.

Because of difficulty over title deeds, the church was used regularly for divine service for more than forty years before it was consecrated.  This ceremony took place on the 12th March 1884 and included the consecration of the adjoining cemetery.  It was conducted by the Bishop of Tasmania, the Rt. Revd. Dr. Sandford, assisted by the Rector, the Revd J.K.Wilmer.

 The illuminated cross which stands on the belltower was erected in 1958 as a memorial to those who died in the 1939-1945 war.  The first World War is commemorated by an Honour Roll in the church.

 The unique ornamental fence which once surrounded the churchyard was removed in 1971, because of deterioration, the present chain and steel post fence was erected from funds received from an appeal held for the fence.

Headstones in this cemetery were photographed 3 July 2004
