United States Virginia Beckford Parish
Beckford Parish has served Frederick County, Virginia, Dunmore County, Virginia, and Shenandoah County, Virginia.
The following parish report was made to the Convention of 1820:
- "Beckford parish, Shenadoah county. This parish is in an infant state: they have had no Episcopal minister among them since the revolutionary war, except occasional visits, and these only within the last two or three years - the present minister has not resided there long enough to enable him to say with correctness what the prospect is. The parish inclues the whole country of Shenandoah: the few Episcopal families residing in it are much scattered, and the people in general pleased with the doctrines of the church. Marriages five--baptisms two."
Financial accounts of the Beckford Parish poorhouse are kept in Alms House Records, 1800-1899, at the Shenandoah County Archives in Woodstock, Va. Copies: FHL Film 1548900 Items 1-2
