As far back as 1675 Christ church parish and Middlesex county were in a certain sense synonymous terms ... Though the parish of Christ church was formed in 1666, it was two years (more or less) thereafter that Middlesex county was established."--Preface. The entries from 1663 to 1665 record the vestry meetings of Lancaster parish, which in 1666 united with Peanckutanck parish to form Christ church parish.
