“Hunter Memorial Church, Sialkot, Panjab, India”. Exterior view of a parish church built in the Victorian Gothic style. The architect was W. B. Harington, executive engineer of the station, and the funds were raised by Mrs Prinsep. The Church was opened on 22 January 1865 by the Rev. Hugh Drennan and nine families of the Meg caste, from Bajwat, were settled on surrounding farmland to establish a local community, Hunterpur. The Church was built in memory of Thomas Hunter (1827-1857) who was murdered with his family during the Indian Rebellion in 1857. Mr Hunter was the first Church of Scotland missionary to the Punjab and had only arrived in Sialkot that year.
