First convention of the Church of England in the American Colonies

The first ever convention of Church of England parishes in the colonies was held in 1760 in Philadelphia. Barton attended along with other clergy from Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This was the first time that American Anglicans had come together to discuss common issues. Barton prepared the convention’s letters to the archbishop of Canterbury and bishop of London as well as those to Thomas and Richard Penn, proprietaries of the Province of Pennsylvania.
