A general meeting for Friends in the Delaware Valley area was first convened at Burlington in 1681. The first general meeting held in Philadelphia was in 1683. Since 1760, all Yearly Meetings have been held in Philadelphia. The area of the Yearly Meeting has diminished over time. Generally, its territory now embraces eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, Delaware, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. A great schism among Philadelphia Friends occurred at the Yearly Meeting of 1827. From that year until the reunification of 1955 there were two Philadelphia Yearly Meetings, one of the Hicksite, the other of the Orthodox branch. Both were located in Philadelphia. Orthodox Friends retained possession of the meeting house on Arch Street, and so are often referred to as Arch Street Friends. The Hicksites are referred to as Race Street Friends since their Yearly Meeting was held at a meeting house, built in 1857, on Race Street. Through the course of the 20th century the Philadelphia Yearly Meetings began to draw back together. Organic union was finally approved in 1955. The work of the Yearly Meeting between its annual sessions is carried out by Representative or Interim Meeting. Most of its business or concerns are conducted by standing or temporary committees.

The Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers, was founded in England in 1652 by George Fox. Fox preached throughout England, emphasizing the need for complete and true obedience to Christ. The Quaker doctrine, which included pacifism and rejection of oaths, created conflict between Quakers and political and religious leaders in England and America. In 1656, barred from landing in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Quakers settled in Rhode Island. William Penn, a Quaker, founded the Pennsylvania Colony in 1681 and provided refuge for English Quakers and other persecuted religious groups.

Quakers in the United States held their first General Meeting in 1681 in Burlington, New Jersey. This group merged with the Philadelphia meeting in 1685 and became the General Yearly Meeting for Friends of Pennsylvania, East Jersey, and of the Adjacent Provinces. Now known as the Philadephia Yearly Meeting, it is the oldest Quaker group in the United States.

In October 1719, the Yearly Meeting of the Society of Friends for Philadelphia and the Jersies reached consensus on a "book of discipline" governing the "establishment and order of meetings." The regulations covered both the conduct of the Quarterly and Monthly Meetings and the personal comportment of individual members, refining the bureaucratic structure of the meetings and laying out the powers of Overseers and other officials. It touches upon marriage (mandating endogamy), burial, and attendance at meetings, and cautions Friends to plainness of speech and dress, drinking, smoking, backbiting, and gaming.

Among other rules, the Book of Discipline proscribed selling alcohol to Indians, "it being contrary to the care Friends have always had since the settlement of the Countries, that they might not contribute to the abuse and hurt those poor people receive by drinking thereof" and selling Indian slaves, and banned "the fetching or importing Negroe Slaves from their own Country or elsewhere," cautioning owners of slaves to be humane in their treatment.
