Tottenham Quakers

George Fox and Tottenham

George Fox visited Quakers in Tottenham in 1689. He had been in London.

"But I found my body would no longer bear the city; wherefore, ... I went to Tottenham High Cross and from thence to... Winchmore Hill, and to Enfield; spending three weeks among Friends thereabouts, and had Meetings at all those places."

Fox visited Tottenham Friends again in 1690. By 1691, Tottenham Monthly Meeting was formed.
