Near this site in 1707 Francis Makemie, a native of Ireland and Father of American Presbyterianism, challenged the edict of Lord Cornbury, Governor of the colony, forbidding him from preaching here. The services he conducted in William Jackson's home resulted in his being indicted for preaching a "Pernicious Doctrine." His spirited court appearance resulted in his acquittal. It was the first great victory here for religious liberty.
