EARLY. MILITARY COLONIAL CHAPLAIN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.
Sir, In an obituary notice in your issue of Saturday, 7th, It is said that the late Rev. John Vincent was an early military colonial chaplain. This statement cannot be correct, tor there never was such a Rank, Position, or Office in those days. The early Chaplains were Civil Officers of the Crown. The only Military Chaplain who ever came to Now South Wales was the Rev. James Bain, who came out in H.M.S. Gorgon In 1791 as Chaplain of the Now South Wales Corps, and returned to England in 1794. The Rev. John Vincent came out in the ship Elizabeth with his wife and four children, arriving at Sydney on January 12, 1828. This was when the Colony was in the diocese of Calcutta, and the Rev. Thomas Hobbes Scott was Archdeacon of New South. Wales. The Rev. John Vincent on arrival was given the charge of the district of Brisbane, then in its Infancy. In 1833 he was transferred to Sutton Forest by Archdeacon Broughton. In 1839 he was appointed to Castlereagh and Emu Plains, where he remained until his death at Penrith in 1854. An Indian ecclesiastic recently stated In Sydney that the early Church In Australia was under the contro1 of Military Chaplalns, which is quite incorrect, for with the exception given there never were any Military Chaplains, nor did any of the British Regiments of the Line that were stationed in Australia have a Chaplain.
