Historian William F. Ganong believed the name suggested by other Saint names in the area.[4]

Five of the original six mainland parishes of Charlotte County used names of major saints recognised by the Church of England: Andrew (Scotland), David (Wales), George (England), Patrick (Ireland), and Stephen.

Saint Patrick was erected in 1786 as one of Charlotte County’s original parishes,[5] including parts of Saint Croix Parish but not all of modern Saint Patrick.
