Guide to the Buildings of Surry by Kornwolf
Lawne's Creek Parish Church
A third church had been built about 1695 at a new site, near Bacon's Castle, more readily accessible to the parish as a whole. The site was adjacent land owned by Arthur Allen II and was located between his land and that which his wife, Katherine, had inherited from her father Lawrence Baker. (A quote from Surry Co records)...."On May 28, 1695 Captain Henry Tooke complained that Phillip Shelly refused to take or pay for "panells....for a church said Shelly was building."

Just thought these items may give you some clues.
