National society daughters of the american revolution

The Lynnhaven Parish Chapter took its name from one of the oldest designated areas in what is now the City of Virginia Beach. The boundaries of the Lynnhaven Parish were first defined by the Assembly at Jamestown in 1642 and can be found in Hening's Statutes at Large.

DAR Recognized SiteThis called for "the parish of Linhaven to begin at the first creek shooting out of the Chesopiak Bay called Little Creek, including all branches of the said creek and thense extending to the head of the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River to a creek on the northward side of the said branch called Broad Creek." 

These boundary lines were later used when Princess Anne County was formed out of Lower Norfolk in 1691. The County became the City of Virginia Beach on January 1, 1963.

Church Point

Pictured above is the site (now under water) of the first Lynnhaven Parish church 1640 – 1694.  The changing channel of the Lynnhaven River forced the church to abandon this picturesque location.  The old church site lies in what is now the Church Point neighborhood of Virginia Beach, standing watch over the busy waterway that is now the Lynnhaven Inlet.
