Église St-Basile

Les racines de l'église St-Basile à St-Basile, dans le comté du Madawaska au Nouveau-Brunswick, remonte à 1786 ou 1787 et ce, à partir du moment où une chapelle en bois fut ériger en cet endroit sous l'administration du Père Adrien Leclerc. À l'origine, la mission de St-Basile était de servir les croyants du territoire du Madawaska et celui du long de la vallée de la rivière du St-Laurent allant jusqu'à Ste-Anne, près de Fredericton. Le 12 novembre 1792, une permission fut accordée afin de procéder à la construction d'une nouvelle chapelle en bois à St-Basile et qui fut nommé d'après St-Basile Le Grand. La construction et la bénédiction eut lieu en 1793, ce qui fit de St-Basile une des paroisses les plus anciennes du Nouveau-Brunswick; c'est-à-dire, troisième après Memramcook (1781) et Caraquet (1784). L'Évêque Joseph-Octave Plessis ordonnait la construction d'une troisième chapelle qui débuta en 1811 et s'acheva en 1818. En 1856, la construction de l'église St-Basile au Madawaska commençait sous la supervision de Père Langevin. Quatre ans plus tard, soit en 1860, elle ouvrait ses portes pour célébration de la liturgie et était achevée en 1863. En 2001, la paroisse de St-Basile du Madawaska servait toujours les fidèles.

Josselyn, John

John Josselyn was one of a group of Glasgow University students who, on Christmas Eve 1951, stole the Stone of Scone or Stone of Destiny, from Westminster Abbey in London. The Stone was later returned and the students were not charged. They were members of the Scottish Covenant Association, a group striving for reform and self government in Scotland. Many Scottish nationalists believed that the Stone, which had been brought to London by Edward 1, rightfully belonged in Scotland. In 1986, a London newspaper reported that Josselyn claimed on his death bed that the Stone returned to the Abbey was a replica and the real Stone was still hidden in Scotland. William Fillmore lived in or near Amherst, Nova Scotia in 1955, and was a member of a Scottish cultural group there. He appears to have written to Josselyn and other Scottish Nationalists offering support and proposing to write about the incident.
