The church registers document all the baptisms, marriages and burials at Christ Church from 1709 to 1976. They also document the same for Saint Peter's and Saint James's churches during affiliated years. The series houses some private registers, which were those maintained by individual rectors Archibald Cummings, William White and John Waller Jones. The private registers are not inclusive. The series is rounded out with an undated index to the registers and a book of communicants. Entries, depending on the event, include the name of the individual(s), sponsors or parents, presiding minister, date and church affiliation. Many of the volumes are marked as such: "Persons searching the records must pay 25 cents to the Sexton for every search." This 1763-1810 register is paginated in light pencil at the top right of each odd page. There are some errors in pagination. After page 65, there are three unnumbered pages, after which the numbering starts at 65 again. After page 345, there are two pages that are skipped in the count, resuming afterwards with pages 346 (assumed) and page 347 (written).
