Biographical / Historical

A meeting for worship at Tuckerton was established by 1709 under Chesterfield Monthly Meeting. In 1714, Little Egg Harbor Preparative Meeting was established. The meeting for worship and preparative meeting were transferred to Little Egg Harbor Monthly Meeting in 1715.

There appears to have been no Hicksite meeting. Little Egg Harbor Preparative Meeting (Orthodox) was discontinued in 1901; its members were transferred to Burlington Monthly Meeting. An indulged meeting during the summer months was settled at Tuckerton by Burlington Monthly Meeting in 1901. In 1986, this meeting became part of the new Little Egg Harbor Monthly Meeting.
