The Society of Friends (Quakers) originated in the turmoil of the Civil War years and Interregnum. Examining Friends in Wales, especially in Monmouthshire in the period 1654-1836, this book assesses the lives of Friends, notably how education, careers, and marriage, were determined by a code of conduct.
'The detailed research that has gone into this book make it fascinating for anyone interested in the history of rural Wales.'Ronald Watts
