The Church of St. Andrew was founded in 1708, and the first church building was completed in 1712 on land given in 1711 by William Tillier. In 1713 Queen Anne granted the church a charter and presented valued gifts including a chalice and paten.

The first rector was the Reverend Aeneas MacKenzie.

During the American Revolution, skirmishes initiated by the American forces occured in the vicinity of the church on October 26, 1776 and on August 8, 1777; The church was damaged during the later engagement.

The church has been twice razed by fire, once on March 29, 1867, and again on October 16, 1872, but the original walls remain.
