Trinity Wall St New York is also a Peculiar.

It received a Royal Charter in 1697 from the King. This was reconfirmed 
by the state after independence.

The Rector, Churchwardens and Vestry of Trinity actually own the church 
whereas I'm told the every other Episcopal Church possession in the USA 
in in the name of the Bishops. They don't push the subject of their 
autonomy though!
