Here are buried William Screven (1629-1713) and other members of his family. A native of England, he migrated to Kittery, ME., and was persecuted by New England authorities for non-conformity. He and other members of the Kittery Church came to S.C. by 1696. They settled in Charleston and became the first Baptist Church in the south. He was the first Baptist preacher in the South. His son, Elisha, was a founder of Georgetown.
