INTRODUCTION 

The following list of certificates of removal, 
now printed for the first time, will be of value, 
it is believed, not only to genealogists but 
to historians, in the broader sense, interested 
in investigating the early migratory movement 
to Penn's Colony. 

As the metropolis of the new Province on 
the Delaware, Philadelphia became better 
known abroad than any other part of Penn- 
sylvania, and a large proportion of the steady 
stream of Quaker colonists which poured into 
the Province made this city its objective point. 
Of the nineteen monthly meetings established 
in Pennsylvania prior to 1750, as the writer's 
investigation of the manuscript records has 
shown, Philadelphia Monthly Meeting easily 
ranks first as to the number of certificates 
received. 

It is a significant fact that these Quaker 
immigrants to Philadelphia were among the 
most prominent and influential of that sect 
which, for the first three-quarters of a century 
of the existence of the Province, gave color to 
its social and political life, and remained the 
controlling force in governmental affairs.

Introduction 

The Minutes of Burlington Monthly Meet- 
ing, in New Jersey, to which the Friends at 
Philadelphia belonged before the founding of 
their own monthly meeting, record that among 
the first meetings for Philadelphia Friends was 
that held at Thomas Fairman's house at 
Bhackamaxon, now Kensington, in the early 
part of 1682. Later in the year, the meeting 
was removed to the city proper, and a meeting- 
house was erected. According to the Minutes 
of the Monthly Meeting, " The first Meeting 
of Friends of Philadelphia, to treat of business 
occurring among themselves, was held there the 
9th day of the 11th month, being the third of 
the week, in the year 1682." 

At this opening meeting steps were immedi- 
ately taken that '^ friends of this meeting do 
bring in their Certificates from the respective 
meeting of friends they belonged to in other 
Countries, and that they be Registred accord- 
ing to the time of their arrival here, in this 
province." At the next meeting, 12 Mo. 6, 
1682, *' Several friends brought in their Cer- 
tificates as ordered by the foregoing meeting, 
but not being Endorsed with the time of their 
arrival were returned to them and Expected to 
be seen Endorsed the next meeting." At the 

(iv.) 



Introduction 

following meeting, held 1 Mo. 6, 1683, '' Cer- 
tificates were brought in and Read. Agreed 
that they would be Registered and afterwards 
returned." 

During the earliest years of the meeting's 
history nearly all the certificates of removal 
received were recorded, and but few of the 
originals were retained for preservation, 
liater, many of them were both recorded and 
preserved. A large number, however, were 
never recorded, and it was only recently that 
these unrecorded originals were arranged, 
mounted, and made accessible for examination. 

In abstracting from the certificates, the 
writer has endeavored to include all the more 
important points of each certificate, and has 
quoted items that seemed especially interesting 
or quaint. When record of the receipt or 
arrival of a certificate has been found in the 
Minutes, it is noted. The early Minutes seldom 
record the receipt of a certificate, although the 
later Minutes do in most cases. 

The compiler is especially grateful to G^rge 
J. Scattergood, of Philadelphia, who kindly 
secured him access to the records at Fourth 
and Arch streets. He is also under obligations 
to William C. Cowperthwaite and Lydia

Evans, of Friends' Book Store, at Fourth and 
Arch streets, for courtesies extended while he 
was examining the records. He is indebted to 
Joseph M. Truman, Jr., and Benjamin Wal- 
ton, for permission to search the records at 
Fifteenth and Race streets; and he desires to 
thank Gilbert Cope, of West Chester, and 
Howard Williams Lloyd, of Germantown, for 
valued criticisms on the work.
