Christ Church Parish

The first clergyman in 1708
Rev.Edward Marston and Vestry follows
David Maybank and Henry Gill, Wardens
Thomas Barton, William Capers,
Leonard Hickman, John Simes,
Richard Fairchild, John Hale,
and Nathaniel Loughton.
The Church was first destroyed by
accidental fire February 13th 1724, and
immediately rebuilt. In 1782 it was most
wantonly burnt down by the British Army,
the walls remained standing and church
rebuilt prior to 1797. In the War Between
The States, 1865, it was completely ruined,
except for walls, by United States Negro
Troops. Rebuilt and consecrated for the
first time by Bishop W.B.W. Howe on Sunday
December 27th, 1874. In the summer of 1924,
John F. Maybank, a descendent of the first
warden, with the grateful consent of the
Vestry, had, under his direction, the church
placed in thorough physical condition, and
a lasting metal fence erected around it's
hallowed burying ground, and created a
fund for it's perpetual care.
Walls standing in 1925 are original
Erected in 1707.
