History

Historic St. David's Parish, now known as St. David's Episcopal Church, located in Cheraw, South Carolina, serves the area of historic Cheraws District, which, since 1785, has been Chesterfield, Marlboro, and Darlington counties.[1]

During the Revolutionary war St. David’s Church was used as quarters for the South Carolina militia and as a hospital for the British troops under Major McArthur, who was under Lord Cornwallis’s command.[2]

In addition to religious purposes, South Carolina's "Anglican parishes were used as election districts and had responsibility for road development, care of the poor, and education."[3]
