Poole Society of Friends Minute Books 1704 - 1804

< Return to previous search results

This record contains transcriptions of eight Minute books of Poole's Society of Friends (Quakers) Meeting House, spanning 1704 to 1804.

Joan Goodwin (1928 - 2012), a Poole History Centre volunteer and a member of the local Quaker Meeting House, originally transcribed the Minute Books in the mid-1990s. They have been digitised by Kit Pearce, another volunteer, to reach a wider audience. Both transcriptions were made with the kind permission of the local Society of Friends. The Hampshire Record Office holds the originals, as well as in microform.

Births, deaths and marriages can be found elsewhere on the internet, but there remains plenty of information here to interest genealogists and those interested in social and religious history.

Today, some of these Minutes may seem alien to modern mores, such as Removals & Resettlements; Disownments & Reinstatements; Suffering & Tithes (etc). The following section of The Quaker Family History Society website is invaluable in explaining their significance and context: https://newtrial.qfhs.co.uk/records JG/KP
