Bishop Edward Cridge

Please note that this page is still UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Bishop Edward Cridge appears in Chapter 1 of our Butchart Gardens History, primarily as a result of his dispute with Bishop George Hills, which resulted in Cridge breaking with the Anglican Church and becoming ordained in the Reformed Episcopal Church.

In 1875, Edward Cridge retained architect John Teague to build his new church, the Church of Our Lord, which still stands at 626 Blanshard Street, at the corner of Humboldt Street and Blanshard Street in downtown Victoria.

Here are links to some historic photographs of Bishop Edward Cridge:
