Biographical or historical data
Hopewell Monthly Meeting was first known as Opeckan Meeting. The official name "Hopewell" was given to the meeting in 1734 when the meeting was authorized by the Quarterly and Yearly Meetings under which Hopewell was established. In 1828, Friends in Hopewell and all adjoining areas divided. The majority became Hicksite, the others remained Orthodox. Though they were divided, the two Hopewell groups remained amicable and eventually were reunited. Following the suspension of the Virginia Yearly Meeting in 1843, meetings in the state have belonged to the Baltimore Yearly Meeting.
