settlement of a minister

A term of art, of little significance in modern times. In colonial times in New England it was the general practice of parishes not having parsonages to grant a sum of money or other property to the minister, exclusive of his annual salary, which is emphatically called his settlement. This name was derived from the uses to which it was intended the money should be applied by him. That is, he was expected to establish a permanent home among his people and be conveniently situated to perform his duties. 45 Am J1st Reli Soc § 29.
