Bishop England: A historic look at the school’s namesake
Join the Daniel Island Historical Society on January 20 at 7 pm at the Holy Cross Church on Daniel Island for an informative look at the history of the man, Bishop John England, and the school that bears his name. Author Tommy McQueeney will discuss how Bishop John England came to the Carolina coast, a land at the beginning that was not very welcoming to non-protestant religions participating in the state’s religious and civic institutions. Times had changed when Bishop England arrived in 1820 but he still had to face many challenges; trouble in Charleston, an obsolete parish in Savannah and barely a presence in North Carolina.
