From 1677 to 1691 the Rev. Michael Typerios and James Bowker were ministers, but when their ministries began or ended is not known. In the year 1740 the Rev. John Blacknal appears on the first page of an imperfect vestry book. It cannot be ascertained how much of the vestry book was lost, or how long Mr. Blacknal may have served before 1740. He died in 1747, and was succeeded in 1750 by the Rev. John Dixon, the Rev. Richard Locke having served meanwhile for three months. In the year 1770 Mr. Dixon resigned and died in 1777. Four applicants appeared for the parish, the Revs. Thomas Baker, Thomas Field, Arthur Hamilton, and Archibald Avens, of whom Mr. Field was chosen, Mr. Baker having previously served three months. In the year 1778 Mr. Field either died or resigned, and the Revs. Robert Read and William Dunlop were candidates - the former being chosen. In the year 1784 the Rev. Thomas Hopkinson became the minister, and in the year 1789 the Rev. James McBride. In 1794 the Rev. Armistead Smith became the minister and was ordained by Bishop Madison.
