 Names in Minute Book
 
 of  St Matthew's Parish 
AUCKLAND  NEW ZEALAND
1853 - 1863

---------------------------------

St James Presbyterian Church, Pollen St. Thames. New Zealand.

To raise revenue for the needs of the young Church, a "Pew Rent"  was charged.
This is a complete transcription of a hand written account book we transcribed while on holiday in Thames -
a mammoth task but one which has made available information otherwise not accessible to most people.
It can give clues as to the financial status of a person,
sometimes the number of persons and the Pew number rented are included,
and the years that the person was residing in the area. Possibly even a clue to a person's time of death.
