History of Quakers in Deal

Is there any history of Quakers in Deal? I can find little or no reference to there having been Quakers in Deal, apart, maybe, from some possible 18th century marriages, although when, where and involving whom I have no idea.


Was there a nineteenth century Quaker Mission to Betteshanger colliery? Did Quakers set up any ‘ragged schools’? Was there Quaker involvement in the local workhouses?


How did the current meeting get started? Who and why? Is there any relationship between Dover Meeting closing and Deal Meeting starting?
