The establishment of this churchyard dates back to the
origin of Trinity Church, which was the first authorized Protest-
ant Church in New York. During tlie month of May. 1007, a
charter of incorporation was granted to the Church by Lieutenant
Governor Fletcher. In this charter the first mention of the
cemetery is found. It reads as follows : " And that said church
together with the cemetery or church yard thereunto adjoining
may forever hereafter be dedicated and consecrated to the public
worship and service of God, according to the Rites and cere-
monies of the Protestant Church of England."

It appear tliat at first the regulations regarding tlie use of
the cemetery were loose and unsatisfactory ; for tlie following
year (1(508) this record appears: "After the expiration of four
weeks from tlio date hereof no negroes be buried within the



FAIRCHILD CEMETERY MANUAL. 163

bounderies & Limits of the Church yard of Trinity Church, that
is to say in the rear of the present burying place & that no
person or negro whatsoever do presume after the term above
Limited to break up any grounds for the burying of his Negro
as they will answer at their perill & that this order be forwith
published."

From this time on, accounts are found of the burials of
many of the noted personages of those times, such as Rev. Wil-
liam Vesey, the first pastor to Trinity Church, Lord Lovelace,
and many others.
