March was the first month until 1752. Much of my research was with extracted records so I just hope the dates were recorded correctly and not reversed. It is also important to know that the place given in a certificate when moving from place to place is the name of the Quaker Meeting - not necessarily the name of the county or town. These meeting boundaries changed as needed and new meetings added to areas as more Quakers moved into an area. It is rather hard to keep track of what geographic areas went with which meeting in which years...but that is the challenge. .

The earliest Quaker Monthly Mtgs were in the part of Chester Co that became Delaware Co, PA. The Haverford, Merion and Radnor MM were established in 1684 by the Philadelphia Quarterly Mtg. Chester MM was established in 1681 as a Monthly Mtg for Marcus Hook and Upland. Darby MM was est in 1684 and Concord MM in 1684. Other Quaker MM est in Chester Co, PA: Kennet (formerly known as Newark, 1686), Goshen (1722), New Garden (1718), Londongrove (1792), Uwchlan (1763). Keep in mind that New Castle Co was then considered to be a lower county of Pa even though it was a county established in Delaware in 1673. .

We were once so ourselves but we have been married 44 Years & may say we have lived to see the Days that we have no Pleasure there-in." We had recourse to our old Dish Gammon, nothing else to be had; but they said they had some Liquor they call'd Whisky which was made of Peaches. My Friend Thompson being a Preacher, when the soldiers came in as the Spirit mov'd him, held forth to them and told them the great Virtue of Temperance. They all stared at him like Pigs but had not a Word to say in their justification. (notes: "Edward Thompson, the Quaker" appears in Washington's expense account of his march over this road in 1754. Thompson resided on the site of the future town of Hillsborough, and has left many respectable descendants in that part of Loudoun.)
