Biographical / Historical

Third Haven Monthly Meeting was established in 1676. It was transferred to Southern Quarterly Meeting in 1789. Two meetings emerged at the time of the Hicksite separation in 1827; the Orthodox branch was discontinued in 1828. The Hicksite meeting was the forerunner of the current Third Haven Monthly Meeting which reunited with Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (Orthodox) in 1955.
