0169.00 Records of St. David's Church, Cheraw

1785-1985

1 linear ft.

St. David's Parish, created in 1768, was the last of the Anglican parishes created in colonial South Carolina. A parish church was completed at Cheraw Hill around 1772, but was abandoned after the American Revolution in 1785, following the exodus of Anglican clergy from the state. After being used by Baptist and Presbyterian congregations for several years, the church of St. David's, Cheraw, was reclaimed by the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina in 1823.

Records consist of correspondence (1877-1985); ephemera; financial records (1785-1905; bulk 1882-1905); membership data (1888-1962); printed material; property records (1908-1970); a register of baptisms, marriages and burials (1865-1946); research notes on the church's history; and several sermons or religious essays (1885-1960). Also included are some records of two auxiliary organizations associated with the church: the St. David's Sewing Society (1877-1906), and the St. David's Parochial Guild (1887-1913).

A native of Georgia, John F. Morrall spent his early childhood in Walterboro, before moving with his family to Beaufort. He operated the Morrall Furniture Company, founded by his father in 1908. He was a local historian and city councilman, active in historic preservation and civic improvement.

John F. Morrall's research on Beaufort and nearby areas forms the main part of this collection.

Topics include Jean Ribault, Henry Woodward, the Bull family and the town of Radnor, the Beaufort Volunteer Artillery (a militia unit), historic preservation in Beaufort, churches, forts, and military history.

The rest of the cards are a miscellany of notes focusing mainly on the early history of Beaufort. Also included are notes on Colleton County and Walterboro, as well as information on various individuals and families associated with the Beaufort area, including the Talbird family.
