    At the Disruption of 1843, the missionaries in India of the Church of Scotland and in Kaffraria of the Glasgow Missionary Society adhered, almost without exception, to the Free Church. New missions were later founded in Nagpur (1845), Jaina (1855), Santalia (1871), Livingstonia (1875), and Aden (1886). The union in 1876 with the Reformed Presbyterian Church brought with it the New Hebrides mission.
