Biographical / Historical

Fallowfield Monthly Meeting was established in 1811 by Western Quarterly Meeting out of London Grove Monthly Meeting. The Orthodox branch of this monthly meeting was discontinued in 1838, and its members were transferred to London Grove Monthly Meeting (Orthodox). Fallowfield Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) was the forerunner of the current Fallowfield Monthly Meeting of Friends.
