Biographical / Historical

Marlborough Monthly Meeting was set off from Cornwall Monthly by Nine Partners Quarterly Meeting in 1804. It became part of Cornwall when that quarterly meeting was established in 1816. The meeting separated in 1828. Cornwall Quarterly Meeting (Hicksite) was laid down in 1846, and the Hicksite branch of Marlborough Monthly Meeting was transferred to Westbury Quarterly Meeting (Hicksite). In 1847, Marlborough Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) was laid down by Westbury Quarterly Meeting, and the members were joined to New York Monthly. Most of the members, however, affiliated with the Friends of Human Progress of Milton.
