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 March 25, 1781. A loose sheet of paper, scanned at the end of the volume, totals the amounts for each page.
