History Biographical: 

George Frederick Kingston was born in Prescott, Ontario in 1889. He taught briefly in a small rural school in Eastern Ontario before entering Trinity College, Toronto where he took his B.A. in 1913, which was followed by an M. A. Kingston subsequently earned his Bachelor of Divinity degree and became Professor of Philosophy briefly at King's College, Nova Scotia. In 1916 Kingston was ordered to the diaconate at St. Thomas' Church, Belleville, Ontario. In 1917, he was priested at All Saints' Church, Halifax.

In 1919, Kingston married Miss Florence Belle Brown of Wolfville, Nova Scotia. They had three children, a son and two daughters. Their son, the Reverend T. D. Kingston was Principal of Canterbury College of the University of Windsor. After a period of study at Oxford and Harvard, Kingston earned his PhD and returned to Trinity College, Toronto to become Professor of Ethics and Apologetics. For fifteen years he was also Dean of Residence.

At age 51, on the Feast of St. Mark, April 25, 1940 Kingston was consecrated Fifth Bishop of Algoma (1940-1944). He then was translated to become Eighth Bishop of Nova Scotia (1944-1947), and then Primate of All Canada and Archbishop of Nova Scotia (1947-1950). Kingston died November 20, 1950.
