This bound manuscript is a record of people who donated to the Society, or were paid for a service. The transactions span the years 1790 to 1792. The manuscript also includes a list of the names of church members who owed pew rent up to Easter Monday 1840, and five loose pew receipts dating from 1840 and 1870s.
