The Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull holds three deposits of
Quaker records generated by Pickering and Hull Monthly Meeting, its predecessors
and constituent Preparative Meetings during the period 1669 to the late
1990s, and containing approximately 3000 items.
The earliest records date from the 1660s for Scarborough Monthly Meeting. There are minute books for
Meetings based in Beverley,
Cave, Hornsea, Hull, Kirkbymoorside, Malton, Owstwick, Pickering, Scarborough and
Whitby. The collections also include records of sufferings, title deeds and
correspondence, as well as some records of births, marriages and burials. The research papers of
Fred Fletcher on Quakerism in East and NorthYorkshire are
also held, along with Hugh McGregor Ross' research papers on the teachings of
George Fox and a small collection of records of the Taylor charities and
family of Scarborough. The Library additionally holds sizeable Quaker book and periodical
collections, including several thousand pamphlets and monographs, and important
journals such as the Annual Monitor, The Friend, The Friends Quarterly
Quaker Monthly and the Journal of the Friends Historical Society. The
business archives of the Hull-based shipping company, John Good & Sons,
have recently been acquired and will be catalogued in due course.
