The information provided in these biographical pieces is a mixture of family history, information on commercial life and anecdotal material giving a sense of each personality involved. In addition to the expected entries for different Bewleys, Pims, Jacobs, Newsoms, and Richardson, there are many other names listed not now remembered as Quakers. There are Quakers included from all four provinces and most major towns and cities as well as Quakers who emigrated to North America.
Whilst many English and American Quakers are remembered internationally, Irish Quakers are mainly of significance in Irish history, but even then they reveal numerous traits shared with a wider Quakerdom, in its emigration patterns, its transatlantic commercial and philanthropic links. This book provides an important new research tool.
