Biographical / Historical

Little Egg Harbor Monthly Meeting was established in 1715 by Burlington Quarterly Meeting out of Chesterfield Monthly Meeting. The monthly meeting seems to have sided entirely with the Orthodox Friends. Little Egg Harbor Monthly Meeting was discontinued in 1901 and its members transferred to Burlington Monthly Meeting (Orthodox).

In 1986, a new Little Egg Harbor Monthly Meeting was established by Burlington Quarterly Meeting. This meeting is currently an active monthly meeting.
