St. Peter's Parish was formed in 1679 from Blissland Parish. It contained two churches which were named the Lower Church (also known as St. Peter's Church) and the Upper Church (also known as Christ's Church). St. Peter's Parish lay entirely in New Kent County until 1725 when it covered a portion of James City County. In 1767 the boundaries were re-aligned and it was again entirely in New Kent County.

Includes index.

Contains a brief history of the parish, transcripts of vestry book, parish registers, and appendices which give historical information about the parish and list of church officers. The vestry book contains accounts for the care and upkeep of the churches, wages of church officers, care and upkeep of the poor, appointments of civil officers such as the surveyor of highways, and levying of tithes. The registers contain births, deaths and marriages.
