Paul R. Marchesano on October 22, 2021:

The organ in Trinity Church was built in England in 1785 by W.H. Hedgeland. It is the oldest working pipe organ in Canada. It was brought to Kingston and installed in the Church in 1852. The name of the builder and age of the organ were discovered when the instrument underwent a complete overhaul in 1975.

Trinity Anglican Church, located in Kingston is the oldest Anglican Church in New Brunswick, and has the oldest working pipe organ in Canada. -- from MyNewBrunswick.ca, accessed 2021-10-22
