In conjunction with a brick church of the Anglican faith, which stood near this spot in 1660, Glebe lands were set aside for the clergy during their incumbency. The congregation worked the lands, raised catle and hogs, and stocked the necessary building. Under act of assembly Glebe lands were ordered dissolved after the Revolutionary War, and in 1804 Matthew Drewry bought 53 acres in Mulberry Island for 16 shillings per acre.
