The First Glebe and Church



At the head of John's Creek was the Glebe land, lying on the north side of the present trolley car line from Hampton to the town of Phoebus. A grant to Robert Partin, in 1637, locates his lease of 40 acres as "south on the Fort field, and north towards the church, " and this was the same land as Thomas Corner's, which was described in the patent to Major Richard Moryson for Port Field, as parted from the Glebe Land by a creek making in from Sandy Point (Soldier's Home Point.) It was in this church, in January, 1637, that Sir John Harvey, who had been expelled from the government, read his commission to be governor for the second time. There is an old graveyard on the property of the late Col. Thomas Tabb, which has been restored, inclosed and rededicated as the site of this original church'.
