The Parrot Page - Reba The Quaker Parrot
Quaker Parrots are smaller than Conures and very very sweet, at least Reba is very sweet. She never nips or pouts or causes me any trouble except that she is mean to Quincy, my Blue Crowned Conure. She hops off her cage and runs across the room to Quincy's cage. She climbs his cage and chases him. He used to hide from her but now he bites her so I try to keep them separate. Reba never yelled until I got Quincy. He likes to yell and she discovered it was fun. Overall, however, she is relatively quiet.
Reba loves to operate. She can't stand for my skin to have even one blemish. She removes scabs, freckles, and any other blemish she can find. She loves to kiss and kiss and kiss. She loves to snuggle. She is nice to everyone but Quincy.
Reba is very good with company. She will sit on their hands quietly and happily and is good with children. She talks with a gravely little voice that is hard to understand. I say "Come Here" to her when I want her out of her cage and pretty soon she was saying it too. She says "I'm a little Quaker" quite plainly and taught this to Quincy the Conure. She also says "I love You", "What cha doin", "weeba", "bye" and "hello".
I feed my birds pellets. I just changed Reba over from seeds and she seems to love the pellets. She also gets fresh fruit, fresh veges, and nibbles of whatever I eat. She loves bananas, strawberries, broccoli, sprouts, canalopes....

John Greenleaf Whittier, Quaker Author
New York Anti-Slavery Office The large woodcut image of a slave in chains was originally adopted as the seal of the Society for the Abolition of Slavery in England in the 1780s and appeared on medallions made by Josiah Wedgwood as early as 1787. A popular image, it often appeared in anti-slavery publications. On this broadside of 1837, the image is coupled with "Our Countrymen in Chains," a famous poem by Quaker author John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892). Among his many anti-slavery publications was an entire volume, Poems Written During the Progress of the Abolition Cause in the United States (1837). In 1833 Whittier acted as secretary of the Anti-Slavery Convention at Philadelphia and was one of the committee that drafted its declaration of principles.

ANGLICANS, PURITANS, AND QUAKERS IN SIXTEENTH- AND SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY NEWFOUNDLAND by Hans Rollmann Introduction There has been a persistent historiographical tradition from the beginning of the nineteenth century that the earliest settlers of Newfoundland were Puritans who were guided religiously by dissenting ministers. Anspach, the Anglican missionary and schoolmaster in St. John's and Harbour Grace, wrote in his History of the Island of Newfoundland (1819): "A considerable colony, composed chiefly of Puritans, accompanied to Newfoundland Captain Edward Wynne, whom Sir George [Calvert] had sent with the commission of Governor, to prepare every thing necessary for his reception ..." Judge Prowse, reproducing information from a now entirely lost pamphlet by Mrs. Siddall, the wife of the Congregational minister G. Ward Siddall at St. John's, on The Origin of Nonconformity in St. John's, Newfoundland , in his History of the Churches in Newfoundland (1895), a supplement to the influential History of Newfoundland (1895), popularized from fact and fiction the most comprehensive picture of Puritanism on the island. Its beginnings can according to Prowse be traced to the time of Queen Elizabeth when "some of the English separatists (Independents) were banished to Newfoundland ..., and in the small scattered settlements then existing about St. John's and Conception [Bay], these victims of Elizabeth's ecclesiastical tyranny could easily hide themselves away." We are told that the "separatists were the extreme branch of the Puritans, who had broken away from the Church and the Hierarchy."

92. English Dissenters: Quakers
Bibliography and summaries of English sects and religious dissidents of the Tudor, Stuart and Interregnum periods in Great Britain.
Quakers Summary An English radical religious sect ca. 1644-1660 known for their radical social theology. The Quakers had a major impact on English society during the Interregnum. After the Restoration (1660) the sect redirected itself and its efforts to a more internal enlightenment of the individual. Quakerism had it beginnings in the North of England. It was based on the outgrowth of the personal insights of George Fox (1624-1691) . Fox was born in Drayton-in-the-Clay, Leicestershire. Fox was apprenticed as a shoemaker. Between 1643-47, Fox went through his own religious conversion to find the "inner light" within himself. From his early experiences George Fox developed a new set of religious values based on the idea that all men were equal in the spirit of God. Some have suggested possible influences from early Baptists writings. Fox gathered small groups of religious converts from the Leicestershire area ca. 1644. These groups formed the early basis for his meetings of "Friends". Other groups were formed in Warwickshire ca. 1645, in Nottinghamshire ca. 1646, and in Derbyshire ca. 1647. Fox was imprisoned in Nottingham during 1649. Arrested under the Blasphemy Law in 1650, Fox was sent to prison in Derby. He spoke out against the vain and worldly practices that he saw in society. He also spoke about the coming Day of Judgment.

Beliefs of the Quakers
(Shaking Quakers, Shakers, Friends) Doctrine:
This paper documents the belief system of historical Quakers. Modern Quakers, like most Pentecostals, are all over the map in doctrine.) Quakers (Friends) beliefs are a little hard to quantify, since Friends do not believe in having a fixed Creed or Dogma, but rather in seeking for the leadings of God within ourselves. Some generalizations are possible however:
  • Some, but not all Quakers, view the doctrine of Jesus' and the virgin birth as nonessential and not accepted as fact. Primacy of "feelings" over scripture as source of testing doctrine. Acceptance of any document as valid for doctrine, i.e. Tao Te Ching, Koran, etc. (Society of Friends) Some, but not all Quakers are Unitarian Universalists (by their own description) (i.e. all religions and beliefs are correct and of equal value.) Great manifestations including trembling and shaking. George Fox saw himself as an apostle restoring the true church.
  • George Fox in 1658 AD. What to Quakers Historically Believe The Quakers started in England the 17 th Century by George Fox. George Fox asked his friend and Quaker Theologian Robert Barclay to write an Apology of the Quaker Faith, which he did. Robert Barclay also wrote a catechism on the Quakers Faith using as answer Book only the Holy Scriptures. Following are the doctrinal believes he and Friends until the schism believed in. Conservative or Wilburite Friends still hold this Faith today, therefore are the true Society of Friends.

    In 1787 Granville Sharp and his friend Thomas Clarkson decided to form the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Although Sharp and Clarkson were both Anglicans , nine out of the twelve members on the committee, were Quakers . Influential figures such as John Wesley and Josiah Wedgwood also gave their support to the campaign.
    Thomas Clarkson
    was given the responsibility of collecting information to support the abolition of the slave trade. This included interviewing 20,000 sailors and obtaining equipment used on the slave-ships such as iron handcuffs, leg-shackles, thumb screws, instruments for forcing open slave's jaws and branding irons. In 1787 he published his pamphlet, A Summary View of the Slave Trade and of the Probable Consequences of Its Abolition
    After the passing of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act in 1807 Sharp joined with Thomas Clarkson and Thomas Fowell Buxton to for m the Society for the Mitigation and Gradual Abolition of Slavery.

    Table of Contents
    Who are the Quakers?
    Quakers, or members of the Society of Friends, are a sect of Christians who believe that an "Inner Light" within each individual is a divine revelation. As such, the Quakers have no ordained ministers, rather members of the congregation may speak as they are moved to do so. However, local congregations may recognize that an individual has a particular gift for speaking and acknowledge this to other congregations. In such a way, several individuals have become renowned Quaker "missionaries" and have traveled through many areas to share their gifts. Of utmost importance to Quakers is their lifestyle, and the local congregations are responsible for disciplining members for straying from the accepted way of life. The "rules" of the Quakers may seem quite strict. They were not allowed to attend dances, drink liquor, marry non-Quakers, marry without prior approval, or live in luxurious ways. Quaker settlements were prominent in the early days of Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. The Carolinas also provided homes for Quakers. The Philadelphia area is particularly rich in Quaker history. As the American Westward expansion took place, the Quaker religion also moved westward into Ohio and beyond. A large Quaker settlement was located in eastern Ohio, in the counties of Belmont and Jefferson. Westward expansion continued into Indiana and Illinois.

    100. Quaker Parrots
    General information.
    Quakers!! Species: The Quaker parrot, also known as the Quaker parakeet, also known as the Monk parrot or parakeet. Scientifically known as Myiopsitta monachus. Origin: South America, including parts of Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Uruguay (am I missing any here?). Escaped, feral birds have also established themselves in parts of the US, particularly in Florida, but also in scattered cities as far north as Chicago and New York. Size: Around 11"; weight range is 85-150 grams, but the "average" Quaker is about 90-120 grams. Quakers are about the size of a large cockatiel, but have a stockier build. Life span: Barring accident or disease, a Quaker can be expected to live around 20-30 years. Quaker legalities: While it seems hard to believe, Quakers are actually illegal in some areas! This is due to a fear that feral Quakers will harm native wildlife or become an agricultural pest. To some, this is a very legitimate fear, as non-native sparrows and starlings have certainly harmed native birds and become nation-wide pests, and Quakers in their native South America eat and damage crops. To others, both these fears are completely unfounded as Quakers are not likely to survive beyond the cities where they have established themselves, because they rely upon humans for food. Regardless, some states have outlawed Quakers, and others require a permit or have certain restrictions. Make sure to read up and research your local laws before beginning your search for a Quaker! There's an online list of state laws concerning Quakers at this page:
