Richard Randolph read a letter from Hon. William Byrd, Esq., dated 12 Oct, stating that he would be pleased to grant the church an acre to build their church upon, but "there are so many roads already thro' that land that the damage to me would be too great to have another of a mile cut through it. I should be very glad if you would please to think Richmond a proper place... if (the people) will agree to have it there, I will give them two of the best lots that are not taken up, and besides that give them any pine timber they can find on that side of Shockoe Creek, and wood for burning of bricks into the bargain." The vestry voted that the church should be built on the hill called Indian Town, on the south side of Bacon's Branch, at Richmond. This church became old St. John's Church on Church Hill.
