See: the category for profiles of attendees In the early 1720's Quakers from Long Island made their way to Chappaqua, a settlement then known by its Indian name of Shapiqua, meaning Running Water. By 1732 Chappaqua had become a well established Quaker settlement where meetings for worship were held in a log lean-to at the home Abel Weeks. - Additional material: History of Chappaqua Meeting

The Chappaqua Monthly Meeting was established in 1785, set off from the Purchase Monthly Meeting, under Purchase Quarterly Meeting. The pre-Separation men's minutes were retained by the Orthodox clerk and were reportedly destroyed by fire in 1847, along with early Orthodox records up to 1830. The Hicksite and Orthodox branches of Chappaqua Monthly Meeting reunited in 1961, meeting in the formerly Hicksite meeting house.
