James Scovill

ID #2085, (1732/33-1808)

Family: Amy Nichols b. 9 Aug 1742, d. 25 Jun 1832

Biography:
  • James Scovill was born on 27 Jan 1732/33, in Waterbury, Connecticut.1
  • He graduated from Yale College in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1757.

  • Copy of the Letters of Orders of James Scovil : By the tenor of these present, We, Zachary, by divine permission, Bishop of Rochester, do make known unto all men that on Sunday the first day of April in the year of our Lord, on thousand seven hundred and fifty nine, We, the Bishop before mentioned, solemnly administering holy orders, under the protection of the Almighty in the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster did, at the request of our Reverend Brother Thomas, Lord Bishop of London, admit Our Beloved in Christ, James Scovil, B. A. of Yale College in Connecticut, concerning whose morals, Learning, Age and Title the said Lord Bishop was well satisfied, into the holy order of Priests, according to the manner and form prescribed and used by the Church of England, and him, the said James Scovil, did then and there, rightly and canonically ordain Priest, he having first in our presence freely and voluntarily subscribed to the thirty nine articles of Religion and to the three articles contained in the thirty sixth canon, and he likewise having taken the oaths appointed by law to be taken for and instead of the oath of Supremacy.
    In Witness Whereof, we have cause our Episcopal Seal to be hereunto affixed the day and year above written and in the third year of our translation. Zachary Rochester.2
  • He was a minister.
  • He married Amy Nichols, daughter of George Nichols and Susanna Hickox, on Sunday, 7 Nov 1762.1
  • An extract from one of his letters to the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in 1767 was printed in Hawkins' Missions of the Church in England, pages 398-99.2
  • Soon after the war James, Amy, their family and much of the congregation moved to St. John New Brunswick.
  • James Scovill died on 19 Dec 1808 in Kingston, New Brunswick, Canada, at age 75.
  • He was buried at the Trinity Church in Kingston, New Brunswick, Canada, beneath the chancel. A window nearby bears the following inscription: -
    "The Rev. James Scovil, the first Rector, took charge of this Mission in 1788 and lived to 19th December, 1808, the 76th year of his age, and the 50th of his ministry."
    "His son, the Rev. Elias Scovil, succeeded him as Rector, and lived to 10th of February, 1841, the 70th year of his life, and the 40 of this ministry."
    "Each after he had served his own generation, by the will of God fell on sleep and rests here beneath the chancel."

    In the vestry room of the same church may be seen a tablet with the following inscription: -
    In Memory of
    REV. JAMES SCOVIL
    Born 9th Feb'y, 1733 in Watertown,
    State of Con., ordained Presbyter
    By the Bishop of Rochester,
    8th April, 1759, employed as a
    Missionary by the Venerable
    Society at Waterbury until
    the year 1788, when he was
    removed by the said Society
    to Kingston, Province of New
    Brunswick, and constituted the
    first Rector of Trinity Church,
    over which he presided until
    the 19th Dec., 1808, when he
    departed this life
    in the 76th
    of his age, and in the
    50th of his ministry.2
  • Under the north gallery of St. John's Church, Waterbury, is a black marble tablet with this inscription in gilt letters: -
    "In memory of the Rev. James Scovil, born in Waterbury, Jan 27, 1732, graduated at Yale College, 1758. Ordained by Zachary Pearce, Lord Bishop of Rochester, at St. Peter's (Westminster Abey), England, April 1, 1759. Missionary of the Ven. S. P. G. to this parish (then St. James), and its first resident rector, 1759-1788.2
  • James' boyhood was spent on his father's farm. At age 17 he had an accident, and was lame for a while. During that time he lived with Rev. Mr. Southmayd who thought he was such a good scholar he persuaded his parents to send him to Yale. Graduated 1757. His stepmother was Episcopalian, and influenced her husband and children to change. In 1758 he went to England for ordination in Westminster Abbey by the Bishop of Rochester (paid for by the vestries of Episcopal Churches at Waterbury and Plymouth). He became rector of the parish of St. John at Waterbury. 'As he was head of an Episcopal Church, therefore coming under the Church of England, he and most of his congregation, if not actually Loyalists, were at least suspected of it, and were, therefore, in constant danger'. Soon after the war he, his family and much of the congregation moved to St. John New Brunswick, where he was still a minister until his death.
