From Roman Catholic to Plymouth Brethren: Now how did that happen?

March 24, 2010

I knew that trying to tease out my father’s religious background and heritage was going to be a little more complicated than the one I wrote about earlier concerning my mother’s fairly straightforward church affiliations. It has taken some interesting and animated conversations with my 80 year old father and his 74 year old sister but I think I finally have a pretty good idea about the Bush side of the proverbial religious tree.

Family Collingwood bearded man is presumed to be David Bush

David Bush was born on board a ship en route to New York from Paris, France in 1818.  By 1854 he was residing in Montreal Quebec. The census data from 1871 says that he was definitely of French origin. I had heard growing up that he was most likely of Huguenot background, that is French Calvinist Protestant, and that their name had been changed from Boucher to Bush once they landed in the USA. If their name was Bush however they might have hailed from Alsace Lorraine where a German/French mix was common. David Bush died in 1914 at 97 years of age.

Today I heard another story entirely from my aunt that is pretty interesting. Apparently one of Great Great Grandfather David’s sisters was a Catholic nun who lived in a cloistered community somewhere in New York. At some point in her career as a “Sister” some scandal within the Catholic Church caused her some concern and when she left the convent to return to her family  she “spilled the beans”  which caused the rest of the family to turn their backs on all thing papish and convert “en famille” to the Protestant faith.Somehow this branch of the family moved from Quebec to Collingwood Ontario, following work related to shipbuilding on the Great Lakes.

Emmarilla and Hiram's Wedding day June 13 1888

He and his wife Emmarilla Merchant were Church of England. They attended All Saint’s Anglican Church in Collingwood Ontario. They had six children.

Hiram was active in many fraternal organizations including the Freemasons and the The Independent Order of Foresters.

My grandfather Archibald Franklin Bush was born in  Collingwood in 1897. He married my grandmother Elizabeth Parker in  Sept 1923  at St. Albans Church, Toronto Ontario.

The Parker family as will be introduced in my next post were Plymouth Brethren and Gospel Hall  and it was into this denomination that my grandfather transferred his affiliation when he married “Lizzie” and chose to raise his own family of eight children in Burlington Ontario including my father Graham.

Hi Pat,

It must be fun finding out all of this information about your family that you didn’t know before.

I thought this was a well written and nicely laid out entry. You did a good job matching the pictures to the text, except for the last two with Hiram and Emmarilla. It seems that they belong further up where you talked about them.

Hi Pat! Mom and I just searched “Hiram Bush” and up popped your blog! How exciting! We’ve enjoyed reading it together, Mom had not seen the picture of Hiram and Emmarilla’s wedding before! Wonderful! And some of the family details were new to her as well. Thank you for sharing all this! Love, Judy
