Records of Society of Friends members who settled along the Cohansey and in Greenwich, Salem, New Jersey. These records are written as Greenwich Meeting and found in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting records.


Friends settled along the Cohansey in Fenwick's Colony and began holding meetings in homes as early as 1684. In 1694 a meeting was established there and a meeting house was built in 1698. In 1735 a Preparative Meeting was appointed to be held the last weekly meeting before the monthly meeting. In 1737 it was concluded that Friends at Cohansey and Pilesgrove were at liberty to keep their meetings every first-day, both winter and summer.
