Biographical / Historical

Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting established Oley Monthly Meeting in 1737. In 1742, its name was changed to "Exeter". Two monthly meetings emerged in 1829 after the Hicksite Separation. Exeter Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) was discontinued in 1899. Exeter Monthly Meeting (Hicksite) removed all its sessions to Reading around 1878. In 1950, this meeting became a united meeting by affiliation with the Hicksite and Orthodox Philadelphia Quarterly Meetings, and its name was changed to Reading-Exeter United Monthly Meeting of Friends. In 1955, the meeting's name was changed to Reading Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

The second Exeter Monthly Meeting was was established by Caln Quarterly Meeting in 1955 out of Old Exeter Particular Meeting. This is currently an active monthly meeting.
