Nicholas Fairlamb, "hath lived and belonged to our meeting the time of his apprentisship and since he hath been loose from his Mr; (master) being sevean years hath behaved himself orderly and honestly." From MM at Stockton, Co of Durham, England, dated 6 m 13, 1700. Received 9 m 29, 1700. (this last date is the date he presented his certificate to the new meeting. When one was a Quaker, one had to take a certificate, such as this one, to the new meeting he planned to attend...it was sort of a report on the person, and Nicholas was deemed okay to be recommended to the new meeting. ( I checked the Philadelphia Quakers but found nothing further on Nicholas beyond his presenting his certificate to the meeting)
