The Burton Oak Grove sunday school where and when the modern sunday school originated Quot in the United states have been matters of discussion for Many yes re and will probably remain unsettled because of the different ideas represented by the sunday school in its Early history. Says Nelsons encyclopedia a Robert Raikes established a sunday school in Gloucester England in 1780. At first the instruction was most elementary and largely consist cd in teaching the scholars to read. But in the course of time the religious began to dominate until the main aim of the school was the implantation and development religious life. The movement thus inaugurated by Raikes spread with rapidity and today sunday schools Oover the whole protestant world and Are found in Many Catholic communities As Well As in foreign Mission Fields. The first sunday school in the United states seems to have been that at Plymouth mass., in 1669. One was also established at Roxbury mass., in 1674 in the congregational Church outside of new England the first school of which we have any record is that at Ephrata pa., in 1740.�?� says Henry olay Trumbull a it would seem that in several places on this Side of the Ocean a sunday school was started within a few years after a Ikebe beginning in Gloucester was continued for a time and then Given up without leaving an immediate successor. Thus a sunday school was organized under the direction of Bishop Asbury at the House of or. Thou. Orenshaw in Hanover county Virginia in 1786, yet but Little of it is known but its beginning. A a further Light has recently been thrown on this interesting subject by the patient investigations of or. L. James Hyslup of Keller a. was graciously permitted to examine certain manuscripts in the Possession of mrs. Wessie e. Nock Eason a great Reat granddaughter of William Eliott of Accomac county. From these records it appears beyond a doubt that William Elliott organized a sunday school in his Home in 1785. The Bible which he used in conducting this school is still in existence and was exhibited at the Virginia state sunday school convention in Norfolk va., in april 19��o. Subsequently this school was removed to the Burton Oak Grove Church methodist episcopal Church South located on Bradford a neck Accomac county Virginia. It has been in continuous operation Ever since a period of one Hundred and Twenty six years. From it have gone mighty streams of influence for god and Good in the neighbourhood in the county in the state and in the nation. It seems Clear that the first sunday school in the United states established with religious instructions As it chief aim and with an uninterrupted history from its origin to the present time was organized by William Elliott in Accomac county Virginia in 1785.
