Christ Church was established in 1695 and was the first Episcopal church in Philadelphia. For a number of years it served the entire Anglican community, and by 1760, when St. Peter’s was split off from it, more than 10,000 baptisms and burials were recorded in its registers. These registers are intact from 1709, and the baptismal and burial records are abstracted in this work and arranged alphabetically by surname.
