Having taken into consideration certain resolutions of a former consistory concerning the disposal of the men's and women's seats on the first floor of the church, which we hereby confirm, in order further to promote the interests of the church, do

Resolve, That respecting the men's seats aforesaid, after the death or removal of an occupant, his seat shall fall to his oldest son residing in this county; and in default of sons, to sons-in-law; and in want of sonsin-law, to brothers or brothers-in-law; and if there be no brothers or brothers-in-law, then to cousins, etc., the oldest in all cases having precedence; conditioned that as often as the seat be transferred by the death or removal of a sitter, his successor shall pay the sum of fifteen shillings to the churchwardens for transferring the same, for the behalf of the Nederduytsh church in this place.

Having also further considered the matter of the women's pews, and what is for the interest of the respective parties, when by the death or removal of an occupant her seat becomes vacant, it shall descend to her eldest daughter residing within the bounds of the community; and in default of daughters to daughters-in-law; and in the absence of daughtersin law, to sisters; and if there be no sisters, to aunts; and if there be no aunts, to neices; and thus at all times the succession to be limited to the eldest in the line of descent; upon the condition that as often as it shall become necessary to transfer a seat by reason of the death or absence of an occupant, the sum of twelve shillings shall be paid to the churchwardens for the behalf of the church aforesaid, by the successor thereto.

Resolved, further, That no man or woman having a seat, shall be permitted to sell or give it away to another, but that every one shall occupy his own seat.

It is further determined that no person leaving this church by certificate or otherwise, and going to another place, shall have any claim upon the seat which he occupied in this church, but may have the same transferred to his nearest of kin, as herein before prescribed.

Being assembled to consider upon a dispute, and to examine and weigh the same, between Gerrit G. Lansing and Bastejaen Visger, about the transfer of a woman's seat in the year 1776; and having summoned persons familiar with the transaction at the time, who testify that, after due deliberation upon the matter, having due regard to the circumstances of the case, and the existing rules, they come to the conclusion that transferring the seat to the wife of Bastejaen Visger was right. We desire therefore to abide in peace and quietness by their decision.
