History & History Related Items

"Religious persecution in the 18th century did not confine itself to Europe. The Quakers in particular suffered persecution both in England and in the New World. 'Quaker' itself was once a derisive term, referring to expressive mannerisms seen during services of the Society of Friends, as they are formally known. Founded in 1786 as a place of religious refuge, Berwick was named by Quakers from Berwick-upon-Tweed, a coastal town in northeastern England "
