History[edit | edit source]

Tillotson Parish has served Albemarle and Buckingham counties. Old Buckingham Church belonged to this parish, until 1784, when it became Buckingham Baptist Church.[1] Goodwin Church, the church at Curdsville, and another possibly near the Methodist Female College all fell within the bounds of Tillotson Parish.[2]
