The Hicksite branch was discontinued in 1865 by Purchase Monthly Meeting and then re-established in 1884; it was laid down again 7mo 1903. The Orthodox branch of Purchase Monthly Meeting met at Mamaroneck until at least 1917 though the last mention of Mamaroneck Preparative Meeting is in 1912. It is unclear when it was laid down.
