This chapel was built by devout people of (then) Frederick Parish. Frederick County, Virginia joined Col. Robert Worthington in completing it in 1769. It was first called the English Church, then Berkeley Church, then Norborne Chapel, as the parish was Norborne, 1770-1815. The Rev. Daniel Sturgis was its first minister of record 1771-1785. The Washington, Nourse, Davenport and Throckmorton families worshiped here.
