Biographical / Historical

Byberry Monthly Meeting was established in 1810 by Abington Quarterly Meeting out of Horsham Monthly Meeting. Byberry Preparative Meeting was its only subordinate business meeting. The meeting remained with Hicksite Friends at the time of the Separation in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting in 1827; Orthodox members were attached to Frankford Monthly Meeting. The meeting reunited with Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of Friends (Orthodox) in 1955, and is currently active.
