Biographical or historical data
Originally known as Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting, it was established in 1739, and was composed of only two congregations: Hanover and Caroline. Within the next decade, several new groups were established within its bounds. These groups were from the counties of Albemarle, Amelia, Bedford, Campbell, Caroline, part of Charles City, Goochland, Halifax, Hanover, Henrico, Louisa, and Orange, as well as the city of Richmond. With the exodus to the West and the shift of population from country to city, Richmond became the center of activities of the Cedar Creek community. In 1875 the name of the monthly meeting was changed to Richmond Monthly Meeting. For more information see, "HERE I FOUND A TENDER SEED": A BRIEF CHRONOLOGY OF CEDAR CREEK MEETING, HANOVER COUNTY, VIRGINIA, compiled by Bill Hughes-Mcintrye, 1994.
