Trinity Parish Established 1744 The original "Newport Church" on Gilbert Swamp was sold to Trinity Parish by the Chaptico Parish. At a general meeting of the parishoners on October 14, 1751, it was decided to tear down the old "Newport Church" and sell bricks so that a new church could be built on two acres of land purchased from Justinian Burch, Jr. On October 14, 1752 the contract for the new church was let to John Ariss of Westmoreland County, Virginia, for 54,250 pounds of tobacco and 200 pounds of Virginia currency. This church, along with a vestry house, was completed in 1756. In loving memory of Louise Harrison Cooksey; church historian. March 26, 1933-February 4, 1997
