I guess I disagree somewhat with others here. Early Quakers were often found "traveling" to other parts to spread the word. In fact, one woman, Mary Fisher, went to see the Sultan of Turkey in 1658, after a harrowing visit to Massachusetts, stopping in Rome with others who wanted to talk to the Pope. She spoke to the Sultan who then offered her refuge in Turkey but she politely turned him down and returned to England, where she was persecuted for being Quaker. She ended up in the New World, in Georgia (I believe) as a wife and mother.
George Fox traveled extensively (even to the American colonies), as did James Nayler and many others.
(I was a life-long Quaker and went to Quaker seminary, so read quite a bit about life in the 1650s in England.)
