History & History Related Items

Berwick history:

"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 "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
