Guide to the Collection

Collection Summary


This collection contains records of St. Andrew's Church, 1737-1979, primarily after the church moved from Scituate to Hanover, Mass. in 1811, reflecting the daily activities of the church. Included are annual reports; correspondence; records of births, deaths, and marriages; meeting minutes; and other administrative, committee, and financial records.

Historical Sketch

St. Andrew's Church records prior to 1780 were lost, presumably due to the agitation surrounding the Revolutionary War. Members of the Episcopal Church were at that time suspected of being (and often were) loyal to the king. Many members were arrested and imprisoned because of their prayers to the king and objections to paying taxes to the established (Puritan) church.

28 July 1725
At the request of several residents of the town of Scituate, Mass., Rev. Dr. Timothy Cutler, rector of Christ Church of Boston, Mass., conducted a service according to the liturgy of the Church of England at the North Meeting House in Scituate.
Services were conducted in Scituate at intermittent intervals by Rev. Ebenezer Miller, a missionary of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, from Christ Church in Braintree (now Quincy), Mass.
11 Oct. 1731
Rev. Miller conducted a service and baptized eight children before more than 150 attendees at the opening of the first church building of St. Andrew's Church. The building, made of wood with a bell-tower and bell, was built on land that had been set aside by the town of Scituate for a common area in 1699.
Rev. Addington Davenport was appointed to be the first resident minister of St. Andrew's by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. He left to serve at King's Chapel in 1737.
Rev. Charles Brockwell was appointed rector of St. Andrew's by the Venerable Society. Brockwell only lasted a few short months due to dissatisfaction with him by church members.
Rev. Ebenezer Thompson was the next regular rector to be appointed by the Venerable Society. He served during the difficult times before the Revolutionary War, ultimately dying in 1775 "partly from bodily disorder and partly from uncivil treatment from the rebels of his neighborhood." It is believed that the early records of the church were lost when the "patriots entered the house of Mr. Thompson, seized and destroyed his library, together with the records of the church since 1730."
After a few years of temporary rectors, the Rev. William Wheeler was chosen to lead the church. He served until his death in 1810.
24 Apr. 1810
A vote was taken at a parish meeting to move the church from its location in Scituate to Hanover, providing that "individuals will build a new church in said Hanover."
Rev. Joab G. Cooper was chosen as rector. He served until his retirement in 1816.
11 June 1811
On June 11, the new church in Hanover was consecrated by Bishop Alexander Griswold. This was the first church to be blessed by him.
Rev. Calvin Walcott was chosen as rector and served until 1834.
Rev. Samuel Appleton was chosen as rector and served until 1838.
Rev. Eleazer A. Greenleaf was chosen as rector and served until 1841.
Rev. Samuel Cutler was chosen as rector and served for over thirty years until his retirement in 1872.
A new rectory was built on Washington Street. Rev. Cutler was the first minister to live there.
Rev. William H. Brooks was chosen as rector and served until he became private secretary to Bishop Phillips Brooks in 1888. Rev. Brooks was very active and beloved in the community.
The interior of St. Andrew's was remodeled in the Gothic style, and a belfry bell was given to the church by the Ladies' Dorcas Society.
Rev. Frank S. Harraden was chosen as rector and served until his death in 1905.
A small parish house, consisting of a hall, stage, kitchen, and guild room, was erected behind the church, and a clock was added to the steeple of the church.
Rev. Marcus H. Carroll was chosen as rector, and he served for nearly twenty years. Rev. Carroll created several new programs as rector, including the Altar Guild, a Parish Aid Society (later the Women's Guild), a Boys' Club, and the Vestry Choir, which he led. He also wrote several songs that were sung during services and introduced the envelope system.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the erection of the church in Hanover, a new organ and choir stalls were purchased for the anniversary celebrations.
Rev. Walter Whitehill was chosen as rector and served until his death in 1933. During his service, the parish house was enlarged.
Rev. Stanley Ross Fisher was chosen to take the non-Eucharistic services until an ordained Episcopal clergyman could be found. However, Rev. Fisher took the examinations of the Episcopal priesthood and was ordained at St. Andrew's in 1935. He was the rector until he retired in 1949.
Rev. Robert Lewis Jones was chosen as rector and served until he retired in 1974.
The church was restored with Gothic touches removed, and a new organ was installed.
The old rectors' house on Washington Street was sold, and the house adjacent to the parish was purchased to become the new home of the rector and his family.
St. Andrew's celebrated the 150th anniversary of the erection of the church in Hanover.
Rev. Donald Lunetta was chosen as the first curate, and then assistant minister. He was ordained the following year at St. Andrew's and served until he left for another position in 1964.
Fanny H. Phillips was the first women to join the vestry.
Rev. Wilbur Kingwill was chosen as co-minister and served until he retired in 1971.
Reverend Robert Allen Mackie was chosen as rector.
Along with the town of Hanover, St. Andrew's celebrated the 250th anniversary of the founding of the parish.

Collection Description

The St. Andrew's Church (Hanover, Mass.) records consist of 16 document boxes, two oversize boxes, and 32 volumes that span the years 1737-1979. The collection is divided into seven series: Parish Records, Rectors and Ministers' Sermons, Parish Club and Organization Records, Scrapbooks, Historical Records, Printed Materials, and Miscellaneous Oversize.

The bulk of the collection consists of records created after St. Andrew's relocated from Scituate to Hanover in 1811. Although St. Andrew's was founded in the early eighteenth century, almost all of the early parish records in this collection date from after the end of the Revolutionary War. Most of the records from before 1780 are thought to have been destroyed by patriots before or during the war because members of the Episcopal Church were believed to be supporters of the king.

Parish records document the daily management of the church and the formal services and programs offered by the church. These records, created or received primarily by rectors, wardens, vestry, and other staff, include annual reports; correspondence; records of births, deaths, and marriages; meeting minutes; and other administrative, committee, and financial records kept from 1774-1979. In addition to the parish records, there are many printed materials that reflect the daily management of the church and the formal programs and services offered by the church, including orders of service (1835-1975) and several iterations of church bulletins from 1910-1975. The records in both of these series also reflect St. Andrew's relationship with the Massachusetts Diocese and the Episcopal Church in general.

Parish club and organization records reflect the involvement of church members in activities, programs, and events, and include records of a few women's organizations.

The earliest materials in the collection are sermons written and preached by the clergy of St. Andrew's (and elsewhere), including anonymous sermons beginning in 1737 that were formerly attributed to Rev. Ebenezer Thompson.

The collection also contains a series of scrapbooks that document many of the activities, programs, and events held at St. Andrew's and a series of historical records that includes accounts and notes about the history of the church and its members.
