Name of creator
Clarkleigh Mission field existed from approximately 1930 until 1960. A mission station at Clarkleigh, Manitoba, located in the Rural Municipality of Coldwell, originated in the 1890s at Lincoln School and early services were held by Rev. Andrew Baird and Rev. Alex McFarlane. It appears that the Seamo Mission Field became Clarkleigh Mission field sometime in the 1920s or 30s. The Clarkleigh Mission field included points at Clarkleigh/Seamo, Lily Bay and Oak Point. The Clarkleigh field operated as a United Church mission field until 1961 when the Southwest Interlake Pastoral Charge was officially organized, comprising of the congregations of Clarkleigh, Ashern and Eriksdale. At the time of description, Clarkleigh United Church remains part of the Southwest Interlake Pastoral charge as part of Selkirk Presbytery.
The records of the Clarkleigh Mission field came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers of records between 1982 and 2002.
