Shrewsbury Monthly Meeting was established in 1672. The meeting was transferred to Philadelphia Yearly Meeting in 1682. Two branches were formed at the time of the Separation. The Orthodox monthly meeting was discontinued in 1855. The Hicksite monthly meeting was transferred to New York Yearly Meeting (Hicksite) in 1833. It merged with Squan Preparative Meeting in 1928 to form Shrewsbury and Manasquan Monthly Meeting (Hicksite). In 1954, this monthly meeting became Manasquan Monthly Meeting. A second Shrewsbury Monthly Meeting was also established in 1954 out of Shrewsbury Meeting of Friends; it had been organized as early as 1937.
