The Valiant Sixty were a group of early leaders (actually more than 60) and activists in the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). They were itinerant preachers, mostly from northern England, who spread the ideas of the Friends during the second half of the Seventeenth Century . . . These missionaries of Quakerism were unusual in their time. Most other preaching was done by well-educated ordained male clergymen, but most of the Valiant Sixty were ordinary farmers and tradesmen, and several of them were women.
Members of the Valiant Sixty traveled not only throughout England, but to the rest of Great Britain, to Europe, to North America. One of them, Mary Fisher, went as far as Turkey and spoke with the Sultan about her beliefs.
