Biographical history

The Tilston Presbyterian Pastoral Charge began in 1913 as a joint charge between Stonehill and Tilston: the community of Tilston had been served from Stonehill previous to 1913. In its first two years (1913-1914) the two points were a student charge, and a part of the Brandon Presbytery. Broomhill, and Fertile, SK, joined the charge and Broomhill remained until 1949: Fertile stayed a part of the Pastoral Charge, except for the year 1950, until it amalgamated with Melita Pastoral Charge in 1968. When Storthoaks and Fern were added to the charge in 1958, the charge was renamed Tilston-Storthoaks. Stonehill was a part of the charge from its inception in 1913 until 1915, joined again in 1934, and left in 1949. Crescent was included from 1916-1922. The Tilston Pastoral Charge moved to the Rock Lake Presbytery in 1934, became part of the Brandon-Rock Lake Presbytery in 1962, and returned to the Brandon Presbytery in 1963. Tilston Pastoral Charge became part of the Melita Pastoral Charge in 1968, which has since been renamed the Deloraine-Melita-Tilston Pastoral Charge.
