Quakers -- Ireland
Found in 13 Collections and/or Records:
"The White Quakers of Dublin, 1842-1848," an essay by Ernest H. Bennis, focuses on Joshua Jacob, an Irish Quaker who began his own branch of Quakerism, called the "White Quakers."
William Savery's diaries. The majority of the first volume concerns the Treaty at Canandaigua, and the remaining volumes are accounts of religious visits Savery made throughout Europe. Entries generally describe details of travel between destinations, Quaker meetings attended, Quaker families visited, and descriptions of each location's culture, food, language, style of dress, and form of local government.
The collection particularly provides connections between the Irish and Philadelphia Friends in the 18th century, especially by the Sheppard and Wansborough families who intermarried. Included are letters of John Wilbur, central in the Gurney-Wilbur controversy.
