Biographical or historical data
Leeds Parish, covering much of Fauquier County, was established in 1769 by action of the Virginia House of Burgesses and has been in continuous existence since then. The name of the parish was taken from Leeds Castle in England, the birthplace of Lord Fairfax, whose colonial estates encompassed most of the new Church of England (Anglican) parish. Formal ratification of the parish occurred in December of 1769, and worship services began immediately. In its early years, the Leeds Parish worship services were held in private homes and a number of wooden church buildings. In 1842, the present church sanctuary was build of brick and stucco in the early Gothic revival style, and was consecrated by Bishop William Meade. In 1873, all of the church's woodwork was destroyed by a fire, but was subsequently restored to the building as it exists today. In 1894, the stone wall around the church was completed with significant support from the congregation.
