Robert & Anna AllwoodPrint Page
A plaque commemorates Church of England clergyman Robert Allwood and his wife Anna.
In January 1840 Allwood was appointed to the incumbency of St James`s Church, King Street, where he remained until he retired in 1884.
His devotion to the parish, combined with his indifferent health and personal humility, prompted him to decline at various times to be considered for the new sees of Melbourne and Newcastle or as William Grant Broughton`s successor at Sydney. St James`s was already the principal church in Sydney and served as the pro-cathedral until 1843.
