Biographical / Historical
Makefield Monthly Meeting was established in 1820 by Bucks Quarterly Meeting out of Falls Monthly Meeting. At the time of the Hicksite Separation of 1827, the meeting split into Hicksite and Orthodox branches. Makefield Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) was discontinued later in 1827, and its members were attached to Falls Monthly Meeting (Orthodox). Makefield Monthly Meeting (Hicksite), which reunited with Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (Orthodox) in 1955, was the forerunner of the current Makefield Monthly Meeting.
