Quakers, like Puritans, had their origins in the hotbed of European religious dissent. In addition to the many Quakers who suffered abroad, there were some who felt called to go further afield. The Quaker faith soon came to American shore. (Stratton) Though some had undoubtedly embraced the tenets of the Quakers prior to the arrival of two female missionaries in 1656, there is apparently no evidence to indicate that they had proclaimed themselves or adopted the name of the despised sect. Had they done so, they probably would have been at least named in the recommendation of the Court made in May of the same year, that "the 11th day of June next…be kept as a public day of humiliation, to seek the face of God in behalf of our native country, in reference to the abounding of errors, especially those of the Ranters and Quakers," etc. Plymouth, somewhat less severe in its approach to the Quaker "problem," still deemed them the "pernicious sect called Quakers . . , who sowed their corrupt and damnable doctrines, both by word and writings . . .so as the number of them increased, to the great endangering and subversion of the whole . . ."

The Ironbridge. M y Quaker pages (see list below) are a tribute to Quakers who have made an impact upon history or are still living and are well known in society. Quakers believe that each person in the world is of equal worth. I don't intend to suggest that anyone listed on these pages is better than those of us who are not famous, but I think that through their examples it may be possible to see the contribution made by Quakers in many different fields. Some of the people listed were not or are not practising Friends, although they were born into Quaker families. I have included these people because it is difficult to be clear about the extent of someone's faith, especially if we have limited information about their life. They all represent a wide spectrum of humanity with different gifts.

In Joseph Livesey and seven Preston workingmen signed a pledge that they would never again drink alcohol. Other groups of working men followed the example of Livesey and his friends and by 1835 the British Association for the Promotion of Temperance was formed.
At first temperance usually involved a promise not to drink spirits and members continued to consume wine and beer. However, by the 1840s temperance societies began advocating teetotalism. This was a much stronger position as it not only included a pledge to abstain from all alcohol for life but also a promise not to provide it to others.
The artist, George Cruikshank , whose own father, Isaac Cruikshank , had died of alcoholism, played an important role in helping in persuading people to join the movement by producing a series of books on the subject: this included The Bottle T he Drunkard's Children (1848) and The Worship of Bacchus One of the most important figures in the temperance movem ent was the Catholic priest

While the stringent laws of The Fugitive Slave Act were being enforced and the institution of slavery continued unabated, many abolitionists assisted escaped slaves regardless of the consequences. These abolitionists, who were primarily composed of quakers, exslaves and other liberal thinking citizens, helped establish what was known as the Underground Railroad.

quakers and adult schools
An important chapter in the development of adult education and educational settlements.
Friends Meeting House We stop here because of the influence that Friends have had in the development of the Adult School Movement - and later the Educational Settlements. In the development of non-conformist Christianity from John Wycliffe and the Lollards on, direct access for all to the Bible has been stressed. With it came the the need to the ability to read. This was a key concern of the SPCK and of the pioneering work of the Welsh Circulating Schools under the influence of Rev Griffith Jones. They grew with some speed in the first half of the eighteenth century and could be attended by adults as well as young people. Adults could come on weekday evenings or to Sunday Schools.

We are life long animal servants who individually longed to start aviaries. Not long after we met, this now shared dream came true. In October of 1999 we opened the doors of Exotic Flock Aviary. In our indoor/outdoor aviary we currently breed Blue, Cinnamon (AKA: Red-Eyed Cinnamon) , Cinnamon Blue, Pallid (AKA: Dark-Eyed Cinnamon), Pallid Blue, and Lutino Quaker varieties. As we grow, we hope to add other Quaker mutations to our Exotic Flock, but will place a high priority on individual care and attention. We believe in complete honesty regarding our aviary. So, we have attempted to produce a detailed site to describe our breeding practices and opinions. You will find general information about Quaker care and specific details ab out our breeding program on the Aviary Nursery and Diet pages. The diet section describes not only our breeding parents' diet , but also their kids' diet and our weaning practices. The Parents section provides specific information about the genetics, bloodlines, and breeding history of many of our current breeder pairs while the Kids section keeps a running tally of current availability and pricing as well as a list of references .

Founding of Pennsylvania Abolition Society
Resource Bank Contents

As early as 1688, four German Quakers in Germantown near Philadelphia protested slavery in a resolution that condemned the "traffic of Men-body." By the 1770s, abolitionism was a full-scale movement in Pennsylvania. Led by such Quaker activists as Anthony Benezet and John Woolman, many Philadelphia slaveholders of all denominations had begun bowing to pressure to emancipate their slaves on religious, moral, and economic grounds.
In April 1775, Benezet called the first meeting of the Society for the Relief of Free Negroes Unlawfully held in Bondagevii at the Rising Sun Tavern. Thomas Paineviii was among the ten white Philadelphians who attended; seven of the group were Quakers. Often referred to as the Abolition Society, the group focused on intervention in the cases of blacks and Indians who claimed to have been illegally enslaved. Of the twenty-four men who attended the four meetings held before the Society disbanded, seventeen were Quakers.
Six of these original members were among the largely Quaker group of eighteen Philadelphians that reorganized in February 1784 as the Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery and for the Relief of Free Negroes Unlawfully Held in Bondageix (commonly referred to as the Pennsylvania Abolition Society, or PAS). Although still occupied with litigation on behalf of blacks who were illegally enslaved under existing laws, the new name reflected the Society's growing emphasis on abolition as a goal. Within two years, the group had grown to 82 members and inspired the establishment of anti-slavery organizations in other cities.

Religious Society of Friends
The first Europeans to settle Burlington were members of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers. Founded by George Fox in seventeenth-century England, the Friends quickly met with persecution for their refusal to bear arms, take oaths, and pay tithes. Less than a quarter-century after the Society was founded, Friends began leaving England for the religious freedom of America. More than one third of those originally purchasing land in Burlington had been fined or imprisoned for their beliefs in England. Even as their ship, the Kent, sailed down the Thames River, King Charles II boarded it from his royal barge and wished them a safe voyage. As the King's own laws led to much of the abuse the Quakers received in England, this blessing is usually viewed as a polite "go away," at best. Since 1677, Burlington has been the home of many Friends, including

Some 50,000 North Carolinians left the state and moved to Ohio or Indiana in protest to slavery during the thirty years before the Civil War is not widely known. As the frustration with more restrictive and harsh laws over slaves and slave owning were passed, some quakers, like Levi Coffin, began to illegally assist escaping slaves to flee the state.

    The Quakers In America:
    This multifaceted book is a concise history of the Religious Society of Friends, an introduction to Quaker beliefs and practices and a vivid picture of the culture and controversies of the Friends today. The book opens with lively vignettes of Conservative, Evangelical, Friends General Conference, and Friends United Meetings, reflecting Friends' diversity in the wake of the sectarian splintering of the nineteenth century. "There has long been a need for a study of American Quakers in the twentieth century. With meticulous scholarship and a graceful style, Thomas Hamm has filled this need admirably." -Margaret Hope Bacon
    Columbia University Press 2003 304 PP. Cloth in stock Readers have commented on this book. You can too.
    When you want to untangle the branches of the Quaker folkways as they spread across the American continent, you could have no better guide than Earlham University’s Thomas D. Hamm. His instant classic Quakers in America is the best introduction to the taxonomy of American Friends. Everyone will learn something new about themselves and the other branches of Quakerism by reading this book. - Martin Kelley
    QuakerBooks has got a couple of notable adult books, many of which would make wonderful gifts. QUAKERS IN AMERICA by Thomas Hamm is worthy of a bit of fanfare. It’s a concise history of the Religious Society of Friends in America and provides a vivid picture of the culture and controversies, beliefs and practices of all branches of Friends today. Margaret Hope Bacon gives it her thumbs up, which always makes me take notice of a book. - Lucy Duncan, QuakerBooks of FGC
