Title Vestry meeting minutes.
Date 1717-1996
Scope & Content Vestry meeting minutes reflect the general activities of the church, associated parishes, schools, and hospital. Subjects include, but are not limited to; staff, financial and political matters, repairs to the church building, and preservation and restoration of the burial ground. The minutes also place the church and its activities in a larger historical context. For example, the signing of the Declaration of Independence was not only significant to the colonies at large, but also for Christ Church specifically. Meeting minutes of July 4, 1776 (object ID 1.1.0.2) confirm that the members of the Vestry supported the Declaration, citing an immediate need to omit prayers made to the King of England as they were inconsistent with the purpose of the document.

All inquiries concerning the general history of Christ Church should begin with an examination of relevant meeting minutes. Minutes are arranged chronologically and are maintained in volumes.
