The Bruton Parish Story (New Title!)

In partnership with Bruton Parish Church, we are now distributing The Bruton Parish Story by Donna L. Bailey through this website and on Produced by The Donning Company Publishers, it’s the latest book on iconic Bruton parish in Colonial Williamsburg. The building was completed in 1715. The parish itself is more than three hundred years old and has been at the crossroads of early American history.

Through the narrative and photos, readers will follow the rich story of the parish, the building, and events witnessed by its people since 1674. Full of images, it expands on the contributions of Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin (colleague of John D. Rockefeller, Jr.) and discusses the role of African Americans. Other sections highlight sacred organ music, notable visitors, and nine of the best known cemetery monuments.

The book concludes with descriptions of ministries undertaken today by this active congregation of the Episcopal Church, both within and beyond its walls.

John Conlee’s Latest Book, The Last Pendragon, Now Available!

King Arthur, his nephew Sir Gawaine, and most of the other surviving Knights of the Round Table, have “crossed the water” to pursue vengeance upon Sir Launcelot, whose relationship with the Queen has caused the collapse of the Round Table Fellowship.

In the King’s absence, Mordred, King Arthur’s son, reigns supreme in the city as the Prince Regent. When news from abroad suggests that the King may be dead, Mordred lays plans for his own coronation; he summons Britain’s highest nobles to attend the event. Among those nobles is Lute, Mordred’s half-brother and the Earl of Sanham.

What does Mordred have in mind for Lute, who, because he is several months older than Mordred, actually has a greater claim to the throne? Whatever it is, it’s bound to be something quite nasty.
