St. George's Spesutia Church

Notes:
St. Georges Episcopal Church, also known as Spesutia Church, where our branch of the Pattersons were baptized and buried. Detailed church records exist going back to the 17th century, showing Pattersons as members of the church and vestry.

Harford County, Maryland was first discovered in 1608 by Captain John Smith of the Virginia Colony, when he made a fairly accurate map of the upper country and its islands and shores. About 1649, Colonel Nathaniel Utie came from Virginia to explore the upper bay region and find a place to settle, and was granted an island located a few hundred yards south of Havre de Grace. He named it Spesutie, using the Latin Spes-Utie, meaning Utie's Hope. The spelling was later changed to Spesutia as it is known today. When the Church of England became the established church of the Palatinate of Maryland, the first Vestry House was erected at Spesutie Parish on the property which belonged by grant to Col. Nathaniel Utie. In 1718, Spesutie Parish was divided into St. George's and St. John's Parishes, and the Spesutia Church of St. George's Parish was erected two miles away at Perryman, where it still stands today.

Please use at your discretion these records for the St. George's Episcopal Church (also known as Spesutia) Cemetery in Perryman, MD. I did not originally compile and/or type these records. I have scanned and OCRed them from a typed copy obtained at the Harford Co Historical Society, Harford Co, MD. The OCR process can entail errors (although I have proofread these pages), the same as the person who originally typed the listing.
The Historical Society's listing is undated--more recent burials are not included here.
