Title

Pew rent account book, Christ Church, 1780 September

Date

1780-09

Description

Pew Registers were maintained at Christ Church and indeed many churches in the 18th and 19th centuries. The pew rent records document pew rents collected and from whom. Some books note where individuals sat and their home addresses. This particular journal indicates rents due through September 25, 1780. The journal entries are formatted such that they carry across both leaves of the book opening, and instead of pages being numbered, the openings (called "folios" in the book) are numbered. Both left and right leaves have been scanned together.
