Name of creator
Gypsumville first appears in the Synod Journals in 1927 as an associated parish of St Michael, Ashern,(OW.003). In 1943, Gypsumville, along with St George, Davis Point (OW.020), became linked with the Faiford Parishes. It does not appear that a church was ever built at Gypsumville and the parish disappears from the Synod Journals after 1961. The Records of Service, however, indicate that monthly services were held up until 1966.
Parish to Diocese in 1984.
Scope and content
