QUESTIONS connected with the incorporation of Religious Societies under the statutes of the State of New York, have come very frequently, of late years, before our courts of justice. These questions are often influenced by the ecclesiastical system of the church or body, in connection with which they arise. An attempt is made in the following pages to set forth, in a convenient form, the statute law, the decisions of courts of justice, and such ecclesiastical regulations as are useful in explaining the positive law and its mode of execution. An historical notice is introduced of all those churches which had a place of any importance in the Colony, before the Revolution.
The following table shows the distribution of the subjects.
