Biographical / Historical

A monthly meeting known as "Newton" was established by 1686 under Salem Quarterly Meeting. The monthly meeting may have come into existence as early as 1682 at the division of the short-lived monthly meeting for Pine Point and Shackamaxon. In 12mo 1721/2, the monthly meeting removed to Haddonfield, and its name was changed to "Haddonfield Monthly Meeting". In 1794, the meeting was transferred to Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting. After the Hicksite Separation of 1827, Haddonfield Monthly Meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. In 1952, the Hicksite or Walnut Street Meeting merged with the Orthodox or Lake Street Meeting to form a united monthly meeting under Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting (Hicksite) and Haddonfield and Salem Quarterly Meeting (Orthodox). Haddonfield is currently an active monthly meeting.

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.
