One of the first quarterly meetings to be established within the New England Yearly Meeting of Friends, Sandwich has been conducting meetings for business since 1705, with meetings for worship extending back to as early as 1680. Sandwich Quarterly oversees monthly meetings primarily in Bristol County, Mass., Cape Cod, and the Islands. The Wilburite Sandwich Quarterly separated in 1845 and remained apart until the general reunion of Friends in New England in 1945.

Spanning more than three centuries, the records of Sandwich Quarterly Meeting contain a nearly complete run of minutes of meetings, records of Ministers and Elders, and other miscellaneous materials.
