The parish was created from St. Andrews ca. 1750. In his report to the diocese's annual meeting in Richmond in 1863, the bishop tells of having to take a circuitous route to preach at the Meherrin Parish church by coming though Gaston, NC: . . . "and next morning sent me in his carriage some eighteen or twenty miles to the place of my appointment, which was in that portion of Brunswick county known as Meherrin parish, lying between the Meherrin river and the Southern boundary of Virginia. An effort is making to revive the church in this part of the country. A building which belonged to another denomination has been bought, and measures are in progress for the purchase of a parsonage. The Rev. Mr. Castleman officiates for the congregation. I preached for them on Sunday, May 10th, and confirmed two persons."
