43. "Negro Membership In The Society Of Friends," (Part 1) By Henry Cadbury (1936)
NEGRO MEMBERSHIP IN THE society of friends (1). Henry Cadbury. (Part One). Journal of Negro History, 21, 151213. (1936)
Henry Cadbury (Part One) Journal of Negro History, 21, This Document is on The Quaker Writings Home Page. At no period in history and in no part of America have Negroes ever become in large numbers members of the Society of Friends. This fact is the more striking when one recalls the early and constant concern of Quakerism for the colored race, especially for its spiritual welfare. Long before they realized the evils of slavery, George Fox and his followers urged the Friends to give religious instruction to their slaves. In Barbados this led, in 1676, to a law forbidding them to take their slaves to Quaker meetings, which law the Friends consistently disobeyed, suffering in consequence. Another law to the same effect was passed in 1678. (2) In Nevis, Friends were after a time prohibited from coming on shore; and Negroes were placed in irons for attending their meetings.(3)
In the West Indies special meetings were held for Negroes. Writing in "12 mot, 1673," from London just after his return from America, George Fox speaks of "your Fortnights meetings among your Blacks." (4) William Edmondson, in 1675 (5) is one of the first travellers to mention these. A lost letter to him by George Fox, dated "1 m., 22, 1676," began:
"Dear William Edmondson, I received thy letter and I am glad to hear of the good service and that you have got up the negro meetings.'(6)

Edward Pease
USA History British History Second World War ... Email
Edward Pease , the son of a wool merchant, was born in Darlington on 31st May, 1767. At the age of fourteen he left school and went to work with his father. Pease attended markets and rode round the country buying the fleeces from the farmers and selling the finished woven pieces to London merchants.
When Pease reached the age of fifty he retired from the family business and began to concentrate on his idea of starting a public railway. On his travels buying and selling wool, Pease came to the conclusion that there was a great need for a railroad with waggons drawn by horses to carry coal from the collieries of West Durham to the port of Stockton. In 1821 Pease and a group of businessmen from the area formed the company.
On 19th April 1821 an Act of Parliament was passed that authorized the company to build a horse railway that would link the collieries in West Durham, Darlington and the River Tees at Stockton. Nicholas Wood , the manager of Killingworth Colliery, and his enginewright, George Stephenson , met Pease and suggested that he should consider building a locomotive railway. Stephenson told Pease that "a horse on an iron road would draw ten tons for one ton on a common road". Stephenson added that the

Society of Friends

by Bill Samuel
Originally published September 9, 2001 at
As the Quaker (Friends) movement developed in the middle of the seventeenth century, it needed to develop an organizational structure. Friends developed the basic structure that in large part has continued on until today even before they had a formal membership system. The system involves three levels of bodies conducting significant business, each named after their frequency of meeting to conduct business As the system developed, each larger body had authority over the smaller bodies which comprised its membership. This is still true in many places today, but in other places the larger bodies have become associations of the smaller bodies without clear authority over the member bodies. There has really never been a centralized body with authority over all Friends. Ties were maintained through intervisitation and correspondence in the first couple of centuries. Since then, Friends have developed a number of associations at a larger level of organization than had been done in the past, but none of these have had any authority over the member bodies.

Quakers. The Society of Friends in Victorian Britain
Suzanne Keen, Assistant Professor of English, Washington and Lee University
ounded in England in the seventeenth century by George Fox (1624-1691), the Society of Friends is a radical (pacifist) Protestant sect with roots in the period of the English revolution. Their quaint-sounding thees and thous, and their practice of keeping hats on indoors derive from George Fox's determination not to make signs of obeisance to any man, including the king. Since Quakers understand the spiritual life in entirely inward terms, they do not employ sacraments or other outward forms in worship.
Inward Light.
The doctrine of the Inward Light justifies Quakers' speech as the prompting of the Spirit. As any member may be "moved by the Spirit" to witness, all members at meeting for worship are potential ministers, and Quaker women preached or spoke in meeting from early days, eliciting Dr. Johnson's remark: Sir, a woman preaching is like a dog walking on its hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all. More positive views of Quaker worship can be found in Charles Lamb's essay, "A Quakers' Meeting" (
