    Sittingbourne Parish (Old Rappa., 1661-1692; Essex, 1692-1704; Richmond, 1692-1732) a.k.a. Sittenburne Parish, was formed from Farnham Parish in 1661, with each lying on both sides of the Rappa. River, with Sittingbourne being the western (a.k.a. "frontier") parish. In 1677, Sittingbourne was divided and St. Mary's Parish was formed (See Next), with both still on both sides of the Rappa. River, but with St. Mary's now being the westernmost parish. In 1704, Sittingbourne was again divided with the north side of the river retaining the name Sittingbourne, but the south side becoming St. Anne's Parish. Sittingbourne was abolished in 1732 when that part of the parish in Richmond and King George counties was divided between Hanover Parish in King George and the new parish of Lunenburg in Richmond County.
