I am the unofficial parish historian for St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Middletown, Delaware. Our parish began as a Church of England mission in 1704-1705. In all of the early correspondence it was referred to as the Parish at Apoquinimy. I believe "Apoquinimy" encompassed the area surrounding the Appoquinimink Creek in southern New Castle County, Delaware. The creek flows from Delaware River westward through what was then Cantwell's Bridge (now Odessa) and continued just south of Middletown before it was dammed in the early 19th century to create Silver Lake. The name's origin (Appoquinimink) is American Indian, and translates to "wounded duck".
