Continued: 1950 under name of Richmond MM. Counties within bounds - New Kent, Caroline, Louisa, Orange, Bedford, Cambell, Albermarle, Halifax, parts of Charles City, Amelia, Goochland and Henrico. In 1724 three members of the Cedar Creek MM were imprisoned for refusing to pay tithes on priest wages; These were John Harris, John & James Stanley. Released by non-Quakers who paid their fines against their will. This sympathetic attitude toward the Quakers was but a hint of a more serious coming revolt against the Church of England, which revolt was to have its orgin in this same county shortly before the American Revolution, many who could not embrace the theology of the Society were openly sympathetic withits claims to religous liberty. The revolt against the unworthy ministry of that day all but universal in the Virginia Colony; but the Quakers were the first organized discenters. For years it was a common thing for Friends to be deprived of property as well as personal liberty because on conscientous objections on their part to certain well known laws. The second movement that led to establishment of what became the largest (from point of view of area) and most directly continious of all the Virginia MM, was what was known as the Great Awakening. This spiritual revival and quickening reached hanover, Louisa and Caroline Counties about 1738. During this great time many were converted and professed them selves Friends. "Old Joseph Newly" of North Carolina is given the credit of stirring the people in this section to a great revival. The results was the organization of many Quaker meetings in these counties. Thus this new monthly meeting was first met March 12, 1739, its opening session being held in the meeting house of the newly created congregation in Caroline county at Golansville. This monthly meeting alternated between Cedar Creek and Caroline for many years but was called by the name of that place.

Elementary School, 1801 Graves Road, Sandston, VA. Dr. Nelson indicated
that Dr. Manarin would welcome any inquiries about Henrico County history,
and that the historian can be contacted at 1-804-262-3382.

“Life on the frontier was hard, and it did not lend itself to following all
the rules of the established church. The distances between houses as well
as the distance between the colony and the Church of England contributed to
an inability to staff the local parishes properly, and they did not
function as efficiently as did the parishes in England. Nevertheless, the
established church was united against dissenters, and the government
supported their efforts against them. Chief among the dissenter groups were
the Quakers, who opposed the parish levy, refused to bear arms or pay
tithes to support military actions, and held secret religious meetings of
their own.
The first Quaker missionary appeared in the colony in 1656, and the next
year the Council ordered that the master of any ship bringing Quakers into
the colony would be fined and would have to carry them back to England.
Despite this order and repressive measures taken by the General Assembly
and governor, the sect continued to grow and won many converts. In 1658 the
General Assembly passed an act banishing Quakers from the colony. This act
carried a fine of 100 pounds sterling for anyone who received a Quaker into
his home. By another act passed in 1661, anyone who failed to attend
services of the established church for a period of one month would be
subject to a fine. In 1666 an act was passed imposing fines on “refractory
persons” for failure to comply with the militia laws and regulations.
Henry Watkins received a patent for 170 acres in Henrico County in 1679 and
became “a small but apparently energetic farmer.” As a member of the
Quaker sect, he suffered under the repressive acts. In 1684 his petition
for remission of fines was refused because he was “continuing still in his
Quakerism.” When his wife was assaulted, he refused to prosecute the
criminal because the law required actions contrary to Quaker doctrine. His
sixteen-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, refused to take the oath of
allegience to the king before the county court. Her willingness to affirm
her statements did not satisfy the court, and she was placed in
confinement. Two months later, in June 1685, she was ordered to appear
before the judges. Still “persisting in the same obstinancy as she pretends
out of conscience sake and therefore desiring to be excused and her father
also humbly seconding her request the court have out of their clemency in
consideration of her young years remitted her offence and releast her of
her confinement.”
The most prominent Quaker in the County was John Pleasants, a planter of
means and a respected member of the community. He allowed his house to be
used as a meeting place for Quakers and was warned repeatedly. The
enforcement of the anti-Quaker acts came when he and his wife were indicted
for living together unlawfully according to the rules of the established
church, which did not recognize their marriage under the Quaker doctrine.
He and his wife were fined 240 pounds sterling each for illicit
cohabitation and 20 pounds sterling every month they failed to attend
services of the parish church. Additional fines were imposed of two
thousand pounds of tobacco for not having their children baptized and five
hundred pounds of tobacco for allowing Quaker meetings in their house. The
adoption in England of the Declaration for Liberty of Conscience and
Indulgence in Religious Matters of 1687 and the Toleration Act of 1688
allowed dissenting religious groups to hold religious services openly
without having to conform to the doctrines of the established church. The
governor was directed to proclaim the declarations in every county, and it
was to be done with the beating of drums, the firing of cannons, and
expressions of popular enthusiasm. The proclamation was spread on the
Henrico County Minute Book in 1690. The passage of the act relieved
Pleasants and his wife of the charges and nullified the fines. That same
year, Pleasants set aside a parcel of land for a meetinghouse and
graveyard. This meetinghouse was registered with the county court in 1692.
The recognition of dissenting religious groups did not relieve them of
having to conform to requirements of the law that may been contrary to
their beliefs. In 1692 John Pleasants was elected to the House of
Burgesses, but because he refused to take the oath prescribed by act of
Parliament and the oath of a burgess, he “made himself incapable of serving
as a Burgess for Henrico County.” Military training and preparations for
military action were contrary to Quaker beliefs. By payment of a fee, a
Quaker could avoid attending militia muster. Alexander Makenney refused to
attend the muster in 1691 because “his conscience did not permit him to
bear arms.” The sheriff took his featherbed, rug, and blanket, and Makenney
appealed to the General Court. The court ruled that if he wanted his
property, he would either have to pay the fine or attend the muster. John
Pleasants, John Woodson, and other Quakers from Henrico petitioned the
General Assembly in 1692 for “a new bill concerning the militia and repeal
of the severall acts relateing thereto.” Although the committee
considering the petition reported a proposed bill, the House did not agree
to the report and ordered that it be laid aside. When John Pleasants
petitioned “in the behalfe of himselfe and Severall other Quakers in
Henrico County” in October, 1696, “complaineing of the Rigour of Several
Lawes against them for not beareing & providing Armes & for not appeareing
in musters, and of the severity of severall in the Militia,” the House
agreed to the committee’s report and ordered that a bill be brought
“imposeing less fines then in the said Acts” of 1666 and 1684.
Quakerism continued to grow in Henrico during the 1690s. In 1696 a report
was filed showing that they assembled in three different places, the
“public meetinghouse,” the residence of Mary Maddox, and John Pleasant’s
home. In 1699 a new meetinghouse was under construction; in that year,
Henry Watkins subscribed five hundred pounds of tobacco toward the building
of the Friends Meetinghouse at Curles, and in 1703 he paid 50 pounds
sterling for furnishings. By the end of the seventeenth century the number
of congregations had diminished because the “sect derived more nourishment
from persecution than it did from toleration.” Even so, Quakers continued
to play a part in the county’s history.”

“On September 22, 1711 the Tuscarora Indians attacked the Carolina
settlements on the upper Neuse and Pamlico rivers. Governor Spotswood sent
detachments of militia to the border area to prevent Virginia Indians from
joining the Tuscarora. He assembled a force of militia at Nottoway Town
and warned the Indians that trade would be cut if they did not agree to a
treaty.
The situation was tense, and settlers on the frontier were fearful of
sudden attacks from roving Indian bands. Colonel Byrd reported that he went
to Henrico to inspect the militia in October. After the troops “exercised,”
they held games such as run-for-the-prize, cudgels, and wrestling. At a
militia court all of the Quakers were fined, and he warned them “they
certainly would be fined five times a year if they did not do as their
fellow subjects did.” The number of Quakers caused apprehension as to
their loyalty. Governor Spotswood charged them with disloyalty when they
refused to sell any pork for use by the militia engaged in a campaign
against the French in Canada. He was furious when he heard they had openly
declared that they would ‘feed their enemies’ if the French sailed up the
James for supplies.”

“The Quakers continued to be a strong dissenter group in eastern Henrico.
The first Quaker meetinghouse had been given by John Pleasants to ‘Friends
in these parts called Quakers.’ It was replaced with a new structure in
1700. The interior, finished in 1704, contained a circular row of seats
and a double seat at one end. The latter was ten feet long, and a ‘bar of
banisters’ was constructed before it ‘for the easement of Friends of the
Ministry.’ A small burying ground was contained on the same plot of ground
on which the meetinghouse stood. The building on Curles Neck was the only
Quaker house of worship until the construction of the White Oak Swamp
Meetinghouse in 1723 at Edward Mosby’s. This small building measured
twenty-four by seventeen feet and was built of pine boards. A movable
partition in the center divided the men and women during part of the
service, and two doors on one side provided access for each sex. A third
door at one end led to ‘a small galery for ministring friends.’ Both the
Curles Meeting and the White Oak Swamp Meeting were very active and
conducted monthly meetings. The road connecting the two areas was
frequently traveled by members of each meetinghouse, and it became known as
the Quaker Road. In 1772 John Pleasants’s grandson, John Pleasants, deeded
both sites to the Quakers.”
