Richmond was the third military settlement of British soldiers which had seen service in the war of 1812-1814 with the United States.
At the end of the war the soldiers were offered to return to England or receive a parcel of land to settle in Richmond along with a pension. Those who accepted became the first Settlers of Richmond.
The Parish of Richmond came into being with construction of the first St. John's Church. In 1823, the cornerstone was laid by the local lodge of the "Free Masons" on St. John the Baptist Day, June 24.

The first church was replaced in 1860 by the present church. It is not known when the first church was torn down, but in 1862-64 it was used as a drill hall. The cornerstone of the first church, bearing the date A.D. 1823, together with the Masonic Emblems, can be seen in the wall near the door at the main entrance of the present church.

The spire of the present church had its origin in one of the early settlers. Mrs. Taylor, wife of Sergeant Taylor, owner of the Masonic Arms, and later in life the wife of Sergeant Hill, left, upon her death, the money from which the spire was built.

In June 1961 an historic plaque, erected on the site of the original frame and stone church, by the Provincial Dept. of Travel & Publicity was unveiled by Hon. Alvin Hamilton. This memorial plaque commemorates the establishment of St. John's as the first parish and the first church built in Carleton County.

In 1960 Bishop Ernest Reed turned the sod for a new parish hall, which, however, was not started until 1962 and was opened in December 1963. The new hall, a concrete structure, has adjoining kitchen, choir room and other facilities.

Leader Bio:
Ryan was born and raised in Windsor and moved to Ottawa in 2011 with his wife Kara so that she could start her doctoral studies at Carleton University. Before leaving Windsor, Ryan completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Windsor in 2007, receiving Bachelor degrees in Mathematics and Education.

Ryan completed his Master of Divinity at Saint Paul University in Ottawa in the spring of 2016 and was subsequently appointed assistant curate at Christ Church Bells Corners. As a cradle Anglican, Ryan’s early formation was focused at his home parish of St. David’s Anglican Church (now The Church of St. David and St. Mark) in Windsor, where he spent over ten years as altar server, before serving as a Sunday School Teacher and on Parish Council.

Ryan continued volunteering as a Youth Leader at Our Lady of Guadalupe Roman Catholic Church where he ran a weekly sports night and helped organize larger youth initiatives with the parish.​ Ryan also has a culinary skills (chef) certificate from St. Clair College, and when he has free time he can be found in his home office—the kitchen.

Living a stones-throw away from Detroit for almost all of his life has meant that Ryan is a die-hard Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers fan. He enjoys reading fiction, golfing, and curling in his spare time. Ryan and Kara have a dog, Neville, and they are the proud parents of Theodore, born in December, 2016.   Edit
