Overview and metadata sections

Marlborough Monthly Meeting was set off from Cornwall Monthly by Nine Partners Quarterly Meeting in 1804. It became part of Cornwall when that quarterly meeting was established in 1816. The meeting separated in 1828. The Orthodox branch remained under Cornwall Quarterly Meeting (Orthodox). Plains Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) was laid down in 1854, and its members were attached to Marlborough Monthly Meeting. In 1958, Marlborough Monthly Meeting (Orthodox) discontinued itself after not meeting for almost three years and notified Cornwall-Nine Partners Quarterly Meeting that it had done so.
