Biographical or historical data
Fairfax Monthly Meeting was established in 1744 from the Hopewell Monthly Meeting. When Loudoun County was formed in 1757, this meeting was located in the new county. The meeting became known as Waterford after the meetinghouse in which Friends of that area had worshipped for many years. The rapid growth of the Fairfax Monthly Meeting resulted in a division in 1785 for the formation of the Goose Creek Monthly Meeting. After a decline beginning in the 1880's because of population migration, the Fairfax Monthly Meeting was discontinued in 1929. For more information see, YE MEETG HOUSE SMAL: A SHORT ACCOUNT OF FRIENDS IN LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, 1732-1980, by Asa Moore Janney and Werner Janney, 1980 and WITH MUCH DECORUM: THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS IN LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, by the Waterford Foundation, 1996.
