Biographical notes:

Missionary. In 1858 Paton was ordained as a Presbyterian minister and missionary to the southern New Hebrides. In 1862 he went to Australia to address meetings and raise funds in aid of the mission. He married his second wife Margaret, nee Whitecross, in 1864, and was subsequently appointed to Aniwa. Paton continued to tour Australia, New Zealand, Britain and the United States in mission interests, and later in life he became involved in the debate on the future of the New Hebrides. Frederick James Paton was one of John Paton's five sons.
