Description

This bound volume includes St. Paul's early trustee and vestry minutes from 1760 to 1762, marriage records from 1759 to 1835, baptism records from 1782 to 1834, and death records from 1790 to 1812.

The first numbered pages include a defense of Reverend Mcclenachan, and plans to build a church separate from Christ Church. Entries then cover the election of trustees and a treasurer, committees to secure land and materials for a new church, lotteries to raise funds, decisions on architecture and furnishings, management of pews, and selection of wardens. Vestry minutes from 1762 start on page 21; these can also be found in the separate volume entitled "Vestry minutes, 1762-1774."

Records of marriages, baptisms and deaths start with image 46, whereupon page numbering starts anew. Marriage and baptism records include the date of the ceremony, officiant and the names of the people being married or baptized. Later baptism records also note names of parents. Death records include the name of decedent, age at time of death (or date of birth, from which it can be extrapolated), and date of death.
