Silver Chalice presented to the Rev. H. Urquhart, 1827.

This English silver chalice, which was probably made in London around 1791, was not inscribed until 1827.

It was presented to the Reverend Hugh Urquhart who arrived in Montreal in 1822 and taught at the Montreal Academic Institution.  It was presented to him when he moved to Cornwall and St. John’s Presbyterian Church in 1827.

Inscribed:

This chalice was donated to the museum in 2010 by a visitor from Cambridge, Ontario.
