    Biographical history

    Samuel Trivett (1852-1931) was born in England. In 1878, he was ordained in the Anglican Church and in the same year he moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan with his first wife, Annie Maria, 1852-1879. In 1880, he established a mission among the Bloods in Alberta and remained there until 1891. He later served parishes in Manitoba, Michigan, USA, and Nova Scotia. In 1885, he married Catherine Jennings, 1858-1950. He established St. Paul's Anglican Residential School on the Blood reserve in 1881 and also wrote a Blackfoot dictionary. The Trivetts died in Halifax. Samuel's memoirs, "Eleven Miles of Prayer", were published in the Canadian Churchman.
