Biographical / Historical
A meeting for worship at Stony Brook was established in 1710 under Chesterfield Monthly Meeting.
A preparative meeting was established by 1775, but there is evidence that preparative meetings were also in existence from 1726 to 1738 and again in 1763.
The Orthodox preparative meeting was discontinued in 1878. An indulged meeting under Trenton Preparative Meeting was established, but discontinued circa 1882.
The Hicksite branch of this meeting is very obscure; it came under the care of a committee of Chesterfield Monthly Meeting after the Separation and was still active in 1840 but probably discontinued about that time.
