Quaker records Nottingham
« on: Friday 20 July 12 23:20 BST (UK) »
Is there anywhere I can look at the church records for the Quakers of Nottingham in the 1600s and 1700s. Thanks Marty Restivo

The Quakers were not a church, so did not keep church records. They did have meetings which often kept very good records.

The Meetings minutes for Notts & Derbyshire are held at the Nottinghamshire Archives.
See http://cms.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/home/leisure/archives/archivescollections/summaryguide/archivesnonconformist/archivesquaker.htm

Also, there are a wealth of Quaker records for Notts and other counties here:
