Genealogical and Historical Notes on Culpeper County, Virginia , Page 10

In May, 1730, the General Assembly, in view of the inconveniences arising to the parishioners of St. George's Parish by reason of the great length thereof, divided it by a line running "from the mouth of the Rapid Anne to the mouth of the Wilderness Run; thence up the said run to the bridge, and thence southward to the Pamunky River. All of the territory above that line to be called and known as St. Mark's Parish." The same Act directs the freeholders and housekepers of the new parish to meet at the new church in Germanna, on the first day of the following January, and elect twelve of the most able and discreet persons of the parish to be vestrymen of said parish. In pursuance of this Act, the freeholders and housekeepers did meet at Germanna on the 1st day of January, 1731, and elected Goodrich Lightfoot, Henry Field, Francis Kirtly (not Huntley as in Bishop Meade's "Old Churches, &c."), William Peyton, James Barbour, Robert Slaughter, Thomas Staunton, Benjamin Cave, Robert Green, Jno. Finlason and Samuel Ball. Robert Slaughter and Francis Slaughter were the first church wardens, and William Peyton first clerk.

Germanna Colony Notes

The opening paragraph of the Saint Mark Parish Vestry Book reads,

"Persueance to An Act of the General Assembly holden at Williams Burgh the twenty-first day of May 1730 Intitaled an Act for Dividing the Parish of Saint George in the County of Spotsylvania and that all the other part of the said Parish which lies above the said bounds shall there after be Called and Known by the Name of Saint Mark and according to the said Act the free holders and house keepers of the said Parish of Saint Mark did Meet at the Church at Germanna in their said Parish on the said first day of January and there did Elect and Choose twelve of the most able and Discreet persons of their Parish to be vestry Men for their said Parish (viz) GOODRICH LIGHTFOOT, JAMES BARBER, THOMAS STANTON, HENRY FIELD, ROBERT SLAUGHTER, BENJAMIN CAVE, JOHN FINLASON, ROBERT GREEN, FRANCIS KIRTLEY, FRANCIS SLAUGHTER, SAMUEL BALL, WILLIAM PAYTON haveing taken the oaths appointed by Law and Subscribed to be Conformable to the Doctrine and Discipline of the Church of England Doe Act as vestry Men for the Parish of Saint Mark."

These elected Vestrymen came together on Saturday, January 9, 1730, for the first meeting. This latter date must be an old style date for otherwise the first meeting would have been before the parish was created by the Assembly. At the first meeting, all twelve of the elected vestrymen met which was probably the only time that occurred. One of the first items of business was to elect William Payton as "Clark of the said vestry." For his work in doing this, he was to be allowed six hundred pounds of tobacco Convenant [?] for his Service.

The next item was to elect Robert Slaughter and Francis Slaughter, Gent., as "Church wardens for the said Parish for the Insueing Year."

Then William Payton, William Phillips, and John Macmath were approved to continue to be "Readers at the Several Churches and Chapels they formerly read at and that they be paid one thousand pounds of tobacco Casque and Convenuncy Each for this Insueing Year." Signed Robert Slaughter and Francis Slaughter.
