Biographical / Historical

A monthly meeting known as "Newton" was established by 1686 under Salem Quarterly Meeting. The monthly meeting may have come into existence as early as 1682 at the division of the short-lived monthly meeting for Pine Point and Shackamaxon. In Twelfth Month, 1721/1722, the monthly meeting removed to Haddonfield, and its name was changed to "Haddonfield Monthly Meeting". In 1794, the meeting was transferred to Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting. After the Hicksite Separation of 1827, Haddonfield Monthly Meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. In 1952, the Hicksite or Walnut Street Meeting merged with the Orthodox or Lake Street Meeting to form a united monthly meeting under Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting (Hicksite) and Haddonfield and Salem Quarterly Meeting (Orthodox). Haddonfield is currently an active monthly meeting.
