Description: A photograph of the Marlatt monument in St. Peter's Erindale Cemetery, located at 3041 Mississauga Road, formerly 1745 Dundas Street West. Range 1 CIR, NDS, pt. Lot 3. The stone commemorates Samuel Marlatt, his wife, Jane and other members of the family. The current St. Peter's Anglican Church is the second church on this site. The original church, built in 1827, was of white frame construction, 52 feet long and 52 feet wide. The parcel of land on which the church was built was purchased for ten shillings by Peter Adamson, Joseph Adamson, Alexander Proudfoot, William Thompson, Frederick Starr Jarvis and Henry Carpenter. The Rev. James Magrath, who had come from Ireland with his wife and family, was appointed the first Rector. In 1887 the first church was razed to make way for construction of the second church, built of Credit Valley stone. In 1910, a tower and spire were added. The Church is listed on the Heritage Inventory. The cemetery stands next to the church, and is separated from the Cosmopolitan Cemetery by a row of concrete posts. In "From Strachan to Owen", William Perkins Bull wrote, "The most beautiful burying ground in Peel ... Lovely old St. Peter¿s. Here on a picturesque hillside site with unerring taste." Description updated July 2019.
