Quaker Women in 19th Century Darlington  

Some of the most influential people in Darlington’s history have been Quakers. Many of them were wealthy industrialists, bankers, politicians or philanthropists. You may be familiar with the names of Edward and Joseph Pease or Jonathan Backhouse perhaps but much less well-known are the women from these families.


Using photographs, books and other items from the Local Studies collection this small display focuses on some of the Quaker women who also left their mark on 19th century Darlington.
