Overview and metadata sections

Chesterfield Monthly Meeting was organized in 1684 by Burlington Quarterly Meeting.

In 1956, the former Orthodox or Mercer Street meeting merged with the former Hicksite or Hanover Street meeting. In 1974, Chesterfield's two preparative meetings, Crosswicks and Trenton, were established as monthly meetings. Chesterfield Monthly Meeting itself was formally discontinued in 1977.

RG2/Ph/C47 8.14 ++. Manumissions displayed by Chesterfield Meeting, undated ca. 1880-1930? (manumissions dated 1777-1781).
Folder RG2 OVERSIZE
Scope and Contents

Three manumission certificates (William Wood manumitting Catharine, Israel Wright saying he will manumit Samuel 12 years after the date of the manumission, Mary Newbold saying she will manumit Thomas 3 years after the date of the manumission).

Of special note, these three manumission certificates were pasted on a large sheet of paper much later (undated but later, circa 1880-1930) to demonstrate "Friends as the friend of the Negro," which the creator believed was demonstrated by showing Quaker enslavers as examples of "Friends active work for "freedom of the colored man" is shown by Friends' record, two (of the many) are here shown."
