      WESTFIELD MONTHLY MEETING
      Surry County, North Carolina

      "A Copy of a minute of the Quarterly Meeting held at Cane Creek 1786, 11, 13. The committee appointed last meeting to visit the Preparative Meeting of Tom's Creek report as follows: - We of the committee appointed to visit the Preparative Meeting of Tom's Creek, and inspect with their capability of holding a monthly meeting to the honor of truth, have complyed with the appointment and do give it as our sense and judgement that their request may be granted which we submit to the Quarterly Meeting; John Talbot, John Hocket, Obediah Harris, Thomas Winslow, William Tomlinson, William Hill; which judgement this meeting confirms and directs that the said meeting be held on Seventh Day preceeding the last seventh day in each month, also that it be known in the future by the name of Westfield. Extracted from the minutes of said Quarterly Meeting by Jesse Williams, Clerk."

      ["]Agreeable to the foregoing direction, friends meet the 23 day of ye 12 month, 1786. The representatives from the preparative meeting were David Ballard and Thomas Jessop. Boater Sumner was appointed clerk; Samuel Bond, recorder.["]

      Tom's Creek Meeting, the predecessor of Westfield, was located in Surry County, N. C., not far from the Virginia line. The meeting for worship was organized about 1771; the preparative meeting in 1784. As noted above, the name was changed to Westfield when the monthly meeting was established, in 1786. Previous to this time, Tom's Creek Preparative Meeting had been attached to New Garden Monthly Meeting. In addition to Surry and adjoining counties in North Carolina, the verge of Westfield Monthly Meeting included adjacent territory in Virginia and settlements in Greene and Jefferson Counties, in Tennessee.

      The following list of names, taken from the early minutes, represents a part of the original membership of Westfield Monthly Meeting. No complete list is available. Byrom Ballard, David Ballard, Garman Ballard, Moorman Ballard, Thomas Ballard, John Bowater Beales, William Beals, Amasa Beeson, Samuel Bond, Gardner Briant, John Briant, John Burris, Sr., John Burris, Jr., Benjamin Carr, John Carson, Thomas Davis, Thomas Davis, Jr., Samuel Frazier, Moses Grigg, Joseph Hart, John Hiatt, Joseph Hiatt, Joseph Hiatt, Jr., William Hiatt, Curtis Jackson, Jacob Jackson, John Jackson, Joseph Jackson, Hannah Jessop, Joseph Jessop, Thomas Jessop, Timothy Jessop, William Jessop, Isaac Jones, James Mackiney, Richard Pinson, Thomas Puckett, David Reece, Willias Rudduck, Royal Simmons, Bowater Sumner, Caleb Sumner, Thomas Sumner, William White.

      Westfield Monthly Meeting and Westfield Quarterly Meeting were laid down about 1832, most of the members having removed to the West. Those that had not removed were attached to Deep Creek Monthly Meeting, and it joined to Deep River Quarterly Meeting.

      The following abstract has been compiled from one volume of birth, death and marriage records and one volume of men's minutes, 1788 to 1828. The women's minutes have been lost.
