Biographical / Historical

Upper Evesham Monthly Meeting was established in 1793 by Salem Quarterly Meeting out of Evesham Monthly Meeting. Its first business sessions opened in 1794; the monthly meeting was transferred to Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting later that year. The Hicksite monthly meeting changed its name to Medford Monthly Meeting in 1849.

In 1956, Upper Evesham Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) merged with Medford Monthly Meeting to form Medford United Monthly Meeting. In 1982, the meeting changed its name to "Medford Monthly Meeting." Medford is currently an active monthly meeting.
