St Peter's Church was established and started keeping records in 1837. Most of the early parishioners were of Irish descent.
The records below are from St Peter's Old Cemetery, with sections numbered from 1-15. This is still an active cemetery, only the early records are currently available beginning with 1837. The new cemetery started making burials about the year 1920. That cemetery is numbered alphabetically by section from A - M0
The following records have been constructed by several tombstone readings and extensive cross-checking against church records and funeral books. Early Veterans records available at Jervis Library were also referenced.
There were 13 years of records found in an old book from 1837-1850 kept by Reverend William Beecham. Some of these people were definitely buried at St Peter's but it is not known if all of them were. Those records are included in this listing, most of them, without cemetery locations.
