Biographical / Historical

Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting, sometimes called Camp Creek Monthly Meeting, was established from Henrico-Curles Monthly Meeting in 1739. The Cedar Creek Particular Meeting in Hanover County and the Particular Meeting in Caroline County were united to form Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting. This Monthly Meeting would later include meetings in Albemarle, Amelia, Bedford, Campbell, Caroline, Charles City, Goochland, Genito, Halifax, Hanover, Henrico, Louisa, New Kent, and Orange counties. After 1875 Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting became Richmond Monthly Meeting.

Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting introduced the first minute, in May 1767, leading to the abolition of slavery in the Virginia Meetings.

In 1790 all meetings in Northern Virginia, Western Maryland, Nottingham Quarter, and meetings farther west in Pennsylvania were assigned to Baltimore Yearly Meeting.
