A monthly meeting was established at Amboy, N.J., in 1686 by under Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. In 1763, the monthly meeting began to circulate between Plainfield, Rahway, and Woodbridge meetings. Six years later sessions of the Monthly Meeting began to alternate only between Rahway and Plainfield. Two monthly meetings emerged at the time of the Separation in 1827. The Hicksite monthly meeting was transferred to New York Yearly Meeting in 1833 along with the rest of Shrewsbury Quarterly Meeting (Hicksite).
