Early Quaker Records of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Volume 2: 1751-1800


In 1772, the Northern and Southern District Monthly Meetings were established. This includes dates of birth and marriages. Unusual for Quakers, the records of deaths and burials have been preserved here. The marriage certificates have been abstracted giving names of bride, groom, frequently the parents, and residences. The minutes of the men's meetings show arrivals and departures of families, violation of discipline, intentions to marry, disputes. Sometimes the minutes give clues to marriages not recorded in the marriage certificates.
