Biographical / Historical

Evesham Monthly Meeting was established in 1760 by Salem Quarterly Meeting out of Haddonfield Monthly Meeting. The monthly meeting was transferred to Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting in 1794. In 1827, after the Hicksite Separation in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, the meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches.

Evesham Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) was discontinued in 1884; its members were transferred to Chester Monthly Meeting (New Jersey) and Medford Monthly Meeting (Hicksite).

The Orthodox monthly meeting merged into Moorestown Monthly Meeting in 1956.
