It appears that the first scientific society in Tasmania was started-in 1838 under the auspices of Sir John Franklin. The name of this society is, however, somewhat uncertain. In the introductory remarks to the first volume of its transactions it was called "The Philosophical Society of Tasmania," but it does not appear that this name found favour, because subsequently the name "Tasmanian Society" was adopted. The object of this society was the study of natural science, in particular that of Tasmania.
