NotesShrewsbury was settled in 1665 by Quakers and "a pious people resembling Presbyterians". While services were held from the beginning, the formal organization of a Presbyterian Church occurred about 1732. In 1750, this church helped secure a royal charter and an official seal proclaiming "Religious Liberty" which is the oldest known corporate seal of any American Presbyterian Church.
