In Quaker sources what is "CfdQR" ?

This was added to [[Mauleverer-17|Anne Mauleverer]] but I have been unable to determine what CfdQR refers to.

I found this citation on another website: -CfdQR — Records of the Chesterfield Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends; Originals in possession of Meeting of the Society of Friends, partial copy in Gen. Soc. of Pennsylvania libarary, Philadelphia.

From the context I think it refers to “Chesterfield Quaker Records.” Cfd being an abbreviation for Chesterfield.

Beat me to it by 2 minutes. This is correct. Referring to the former Chesterfield Monthly Meeting in New Jersey, whose successor is Crosswicks Friends Meeting.

Note, I don't think this was used in Quaker records per se, I think it's used in genealogical sources citing Quaker records.

Thank you for the confirmation. I suspect you are correct about the usual of the abbreviation.

BTW: I have Quaker ancestors, predominantly in North Carolina. See Shields-2886, and her ancestors.
