Description

The practice of renting pews was common in 19th century churches; members paid a fee for the right to occupy a particular pew every week. This bound manuscript is a record of pew rents paid to Second Presbyterian from 1793 to 1794. Entries are listed by pew number and congregant name, with dates and amounts paid, and they span two pages, verso and recto. There is an index of names at the back of the volume.
