Hertford is the county town of Hertfordshire, England. It lies about 20 miles north of London. See: Wikipedia The Society of Friends was established in Hertfordshire in about 1655 when George Fox visited Hertford, Hitchin and Baldock. Since that time both Hertfordshire and its neighbour Bedfordshire have been influential Quaker counties probably due to their proximity to London. Quaker Meetings continue to be held in Hertford. See" Hertford Quaker Meeting. link

The Friends Meeting House in Railway Street, Hertford is dated 1670 and is believed to be the oldest purpose built meeting house to have been in continuous use for worship throughout its existence. See" Historic England. Hertford Quaker Meeting House. link
