The original St. Paul's Parish Church was located on a high plat of land near New Cut on a piece of 30 acres of land donated by Landgrave Edmund Bellinger. "New Cut" is the cut that connects the Stono River with Wadmelaw River and the site of the old Church is near a small creek running out of the Stono River and is immediately on the bank or bluff of high land where it rises above the marsh on the mainland or Colleton County side of Stono River.

It was built in 1708 with a parsonage and outbuilding which latter were destroyed by the Indians in the Yemassee war of 1715. In 1756, the church was moved to a more central spot near the road leading from Rantowles Ferry to Parker's Ferry across the Edisto River. Nothing now remains of the old Church near New Cut except the foundations of a brick church in an irregular mass or mound and several graves.
