Rev. Robert R. Horwood was a Protestant Episcopal clergyman who served in New York State, Scotland, and England. Record book of Rev. Robert R. Horwood, dating 1854-1878, documents his activities as a Protestant Episcopal clergyman, from his ordination in the Western Diocese of New York to his appointment as vicar of St. Michael's at an unspecified location in England in 1878. From 1854-1865, he served parishes in the communities of Fayetteville and Jamesville in Onondaga County, Theresa and Redwood in Jefferson County, Angelica and Belvidere in Allegany County, and Warsaw in Wyoming County, New York, and visited others in western New York. Horwood traveled to Scotland in 1865, and with the exceptions of brief periods of service in western New York in early 1866 and the Spring of 1874, he served or visited parishes in Scotland (1865-1868) and England (1868-1878). The volume lists his official appointments as a clergyman 1854-1869, most frequently in the position of parish rector; church services held in New York State and Great Britain, 1854-1878; parishes served or visited in Scotland and England, 1865-1871; Holy Communion administered, 1855-1878; baptisms, 1854-1878; marriages, 1854-1877; confirmations 1854-; individuals admitted to Holy Communion, 1856-1869, 1877; and burials, 1854-1878. The entries are recorded in a blankbook entitled The Clergyman's Private Register by Rev. O. Witherspoon (Buffalo: M. Taylor, 1861).
