Though no record of the site of those services seems to be extant, local legend has long held that some Episcopal services were held at Robson's celebrated residence, which was referred to as Robson's Castle. Since Robson was the senior warden of St. John's, it is possible that the parish's irregular services beginning in 1858 were indeed held at his home.
