Chap. III
[Wm Parks
compilation,
1727, p. 227]

An Act for uniting Part of St. Paul's Parish, in Baltemore County,
to Westminster Parish in Anne-Arundel County.

Whereas it is represented to this present General Assembly, by
the Vestry-Men, Church- Wardens and other Parishioners of West-
minster Parish aforesaid, That they have for many Years past been
destitute of a Minister to reside in the said Parish, so as to have a
constant Dependance for the Exercise of their Religion therein,
which they conceived to be occasion'd by no other Cause but that the
Taxables in Westminster Parish aforesaid, are of so small a Num-
ber, that the Forty per Poll will not be sufficient to maintain an
Incumbent therein: And the said Vestry-Men, Church- Wardens
and other Parishioners of Westminster Parish aforesaid, further
set forth, That the Inhabitants on the South Side of Patapsco River
live convenient, and the Majority of them by their humble Petition
to this present General Assembly, are willing and desirous to be
added to the aforesaid Parish of Westminster: And therefore the
said Vestry-Men, Church- Wardens, and other the Parishioners of
Westminster Parish aforesaid, humbly pray'd, That the South Side

p. 228

of Patapsco River aforesaid, might be united to and made Parcel
of the said Westminster Parish. And whereas the Rev. Mr Wil-
liam Tibbs, the present Incumbent of St. Paul's Parish aforesaid,
has had due Notice hereof, and makes no Objections against the
passing an Act as above prayed; And likewise it appears to this
present General Assembly, that the Residue of St. Paul's Parish
aforesaid, will be sufficient to maintain an Incumbent :
