Abstract

Records of the Hobart Regional Meeting of the Religious Society of friends (Quakers) from 1833, including minutes of meetings, membership records, clerk's correspondence and papers, etc. The Hobart meeting began in 1833 when the visiting Quakers, James backhouse and George Washington Walker, held meetings for worship in the Quaker manner, and others wished to join them. Accordingly on 20 September 1833 a small group of Friends met in a private house in Bathurst street and formed a "Meeting for Discipline". In 1836 a house in Murray Street was purchased as a Meeting House. In 1880 a stone Meeting House was built behind the old weatherboard house and in 1960 the present site in Argyle Street next to the Friends School was purchased. - Private Deposit S.1
