Screven, William (b. 1629, d. 10 OCT 1713)

Note: The Reverend William Screven was an ordained Baptist minister, a sect that was unpopular in both England and New England. In 1681 He settled in Kittery, Maine, then a province of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and became associated with the first Baptist Church in Boston. On Jun 11 1681, he received from that church a license to preach. But he was apprehended for preaching, fined and imprisoned, and forbidden to preach any further. He would not desist, however, and was fined again, this time the sum of ten pounds, a considerable amount of money at that time. He was released from jail on that occasion only after he agreed to leave the colony.

A church had been constituted in Kittery on Sep 25 1682, with the Rev. Screven as pastor, but the majority left the colony and settled with him on the Cooper River a few miles from Charleston, South Carolina, at a spot they named Somerton, after Screven's home town. The exact location of this settlement is not now known.

Screven received a grant from the Crown for land located where Georgetown, South Carolina, is now and Screven moved there in 1693. He laid out the town, granted lots to several denominations, and sold several lots. He moved to Charleston in 1706, after the grant was disputed, and that year was called to the pastorate of the first Baptist Church in Boston. But he declined on account of age (he was then 77) and he returned to Georgetown where he died and is buried. The grave is still to be seen, in a lot located on Screven Street, which is named for him. After it was found in a dilapadated condition in 1867 or 1868, a group of Baptists raised the stone up onto brick work.

In his eulogy it was said of him that "He was pure in morals, sound in doctrine, abundant in exertion, tender and affectionate to all, honored and revered by all who knew him, and whether in persecution or success showing out of a good conversation his works with the meekness of Wisdom."

He was the author of a pamphlet entitled, "An Ornament for Church Members," but unfortunately not a single copy is now known to exist.

Pendarvis, Josiah (b. 1757, d. AFT 24 JAN 1820)
Note: Josiah Pendarvis inherited considerable property from his father in Beaufort County, including Woodstock Plantation on the mainland and Cat Island. He also inherited Horseshoe Plantation from his maternal grandfather Richard Bedon.

He was very well educated by the standards of the day, even taking a tour of Europe after his graduation from school. Tradition says that he located the ancestral home of the Beadon family in England on this trip. He had an unusually extensive library for his time, and the books contain marginal notes in his hand in the languages in which the books were written.

Josiah Pendarvis changed the family name to that of his mother, Bedon, in 1802, employing an act of the legislature to do so. The reason is not well understood, but may have been to avoid association with the deeds of his elder half-brother, Tory Dick Pendarvis, although Josiah was, at best, neutral to the idea of American independence.

Stobo, Archibald (b. , d. OCT 1741)
Note: The Rev. Archibald Stobo came from Peebleshire in Scotland and was sent as a Presbyterian minister to the colony being established at Darien, in what is now Panama. When that colony was surrendered to the Spanish, the settlers, including the Rev. Stobo boarded the ship "Rising Sun" to return to Europe. They were caught in a storm and the ship put into the mouth of the Ashley River to make repairs on Sep 3 1700.

A party from shore asked if there was a minister aboard who could perform a marriage ceremony, and the Rev. Stobo and his wife disembarked in order to do so. That night the storm drove the vessel from her anchorage and she never returned. The Stobo family took up residence in Charleston, never to see Europe again.

He helped establish the first Presbytery, founded the church at Pon Pon, South Carolina, and served as the minister to the Circular Church and the Willton Church. The Rev. Stobo also became a considerable owner of land.

The Rev. Archibald Stobo and Elizabeth park are the 4th great grandparents of President Theodore Roosevelt and the 5th great grandparents of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
