When St. Peter's Church received its charter on June 4, 1736, it was customary to pay the trifling sum of one peppercorn per year because all contracts required remuneration of some kind in order to be legal. The charter enabled St. Peter's to buy the property we currently occupy in 1738.  The parish newsletter has long been known as The Peppercorn and we now bring that tradition into the digital world!
