            Charles Inglis was a Loyalist and the first Anglican Bishop of Nova Scotia from 1787 until his death in 1816.  At the time of the American Revolution he was the rector of Trinity Church in New York and held that position from 1777 until the evacuation of the city in 1783. When he was appointed the Bishop of Nova Scotia in 1787, his See included all of British North America, Newfoundland and Bermuda. In 1793, Inglis' responsibilities were considerably reduced when Jacob Mountain was installed as Bishop of the new See of Quebec, which included all of Upper and Lower Canada. In 1788, Inglis founded an academy at Windsor, Nova Scotia, which was called King's College, and in 1802 the College was chartered as a university. John Inglis (1777-1850) did not succeed his father as Bishop, but did become the third Bishop of Nova Scotia and served from 1825 until his death in 1850. It was during this period that the Diocese of Fredericton was formed and John Medley was appointed Bishop on the 25th of April in 1845.
