(first) Anglican Church, Deloraine

Opened 1840s. Replaced by current St Marks in 1859.

On Thursday the Bishop left for Deloraine, accompanied as before by the Rural Dean, C. Meredith, Esq., J. P., and other inhabitants of Port Sorell. His Lordship had a narrow escape of meeting the bushrangers, as the man sent as a guide was stopped by two armed men, who stripped and otherwise ill treated him. On Friday the Bishop assisted by the Rural Dean, the Rev. John Bishton &c, laid the foundation of the Church and School house at Deloraine. The contractor has agreed to complete this building within three months.
The Courier, 8 May 1845
