“At a special Court held by the Governor at New Castle in Delaware River the 13th and 14th days of May 1675, it was ordered, that the Church, or place of worship in this Town and the affairs thereunto belonging be regulated by the Court here, in as orderly and decent a manner as may be,
“That the place of meeting at Craine Hoeck do continue as heretofore- that the Church at Tinnecum Island do serve for Uppland and parts adjacent.
“And whereas there is no Church or place of worship higher up the River that the said Island, for the greater ease and convenience of the inhabitants there. It’s ordered, that the Magistrates of Uppland do cause a Church or place of meeting for that purpose to be built at the Wickegkoo, which to be for the inhabitants of Passayunk and so upwards. The said Court being empowered to raise a Tax for its building, and to agree upon a competent maintenance for their minister: of all which they are to give an account to the next General Court, and they to the Governor for his approbation.” Signed E. Andross.”
