Also see . . . All Saints History. “All Saints Parish, Waccamaw was established by the Colonial Assembly of South Carolina in 1767. George Pawley and William Poole purchased 50 acres of land from Percival Pawley in 1745 to be used for the building of a Parish of the Church of England. The name Waccamaw comes from a local tribe of Indians who inhabitated the area prior to 1730; their arrowheads and jewelry were found along the Waccamaw River and are on display in local museums.”
