Excerpts from Past and Present of Prince Edward Island, by F.W. Bowen and Co.:

Jenkins, L. C., Rev. 259

"In the fall of 1820, the Rev. L.C. Jenkins, then in deacon's orders, was bound for Quebec. The vessel he was on was driven by contrary winds to take refuge in Charlottetown, and was forced to winter there. He proceeded on his journey next spring but carried with him as his wife a daughter of the Rector. This incident led to his return some years later to assume the rectorship of St. Paul's"

Jenkins, Louis Charles, Rev. 274

"During the last four years we missed the genial face of Louis Charles Jenkins, D. D.. so well known for half a century on our streets. For sixty-four years he was a priest of the Church of England, twenty-eight of which he officiated as pastor of St. Paul’s Congregation in this city. He was a gentleman of pleasing and unassuming manners. but of firm conviction. Possessed of a clear intellect, high culture and broad sympathies, he was in advance of must of his contemporaries in regard to all that tended to elevate society and extend the privileges if the people. In religion he belonged to the Evangelical school and though a strict churchman he recognized the good and true in whatever denominational fold it might be found. As a preacher he was noted for the purity and eloquence of his diction and the impressiveness of his manner of reading. His literary talents were off a high order and he excelled not only in prose but in poetry. At one time he took a great in-terest in politics, and he was invariably on the side of the people contending for wider liberty and better laws"
