The Church Steeple and Bell



In 1760, Alexander Kennedy devised land to the poor of Elizabeth City County, and the sum of 40 pds. sterling towards purchasing out of England a bell for the church of Elizabeth City Parish, provided "the vestry and church wardens will undertake a belfry within twelve months after my decease." A vestry book tells of the contracts awarded for building and painting the Belfry, and no doubt the bell was procured. It would seem as if the church had no bell previous to this time.

We continue the succession of ministers. In 1727, Rev. Mr. Falconer became a minister of Charles Parish in York County, whereupon. Rev. Thomas Reader "took the oath to his majesty's governor and signed the test." Not long after he was succeeded by Rev. William Fife, who taught the private school, already referred to. He continued minister till 1756, when he was succeeded by Rev. Thomas Warrington, who died in 1770. The Rev. William Selden, a graduate of William and Mary College, followed and continued until 1783.
