Biographical / Historical

Goshen Monthly Meeting was established in 12mo 1721/2 by Chester [Concord] Quarterly Meeting out of Chester Monthly Meeting (Pa.). Its first business sessions opened in 1722. In 1827, at the time of the Hicksite separation in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, the meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. In 1939, the three preparative meetings constituting Goshen Monthly Meeting (Hicksite), Goshen, Newtown and Willistown were established as monthly meetings. The original Hicksite meeting held its last business sessions in 1940. In 1956, the second Goshen Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) merged with Goshen Monthly Meeting at Malvern, the former Orthodox meeting, to form the present-day Goshen Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

Vital Records

Biographical / Historical: At the time of the Separation in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting in 1827-28, pre-Separation vital records were generally retained by the branch with which the recorder was affiliated. Researchers are advised to consider vital records which span this period carefully: in many cases, the meeting without the original records may have reconstructed these records for its membership only, giving the impression that individuals in the other branch were never members.
