Association Membership Categories
The Hobart Town (1804) First Settlers Association has a number of membership types or classes:
First Settler Members who are able to trace their ancestry back to a person who sailed from Spithead on 24 April 1803 in the Calcutta or the Ocean, who were free or convict, as part of Lt. Governor Collins' expedition, or was a member of Lt. Bowen's party at Risdon Cove, or was present at the foundation on 20 February 1804 of the settlement of Sullivan's Cove, which became the present City of Hobart.
Early Settler Members are able to trace their ancestry back to a person who arrived in Hobart on or before 26 May 1853, the end of Transportation.
This membership is open to any person, or organization, not otherwise eligible for membership, who demonstrates an interest in the aims and objectives of this Association. Although Interested Persons are very welcome at all meetings and activities and receive the Newsletter each quarter, they are not eligible for election to office.
Associate Membership is open to wife/husband/partner of First or early Settler Members.
Applicants for First Settler and Early Settler categories of membership are requested to establish their line of descent. A pedigree chart or similar family chart is preferred. Not only does this help to establish the eligibility of the applicant, but assists the Association in recording First and Early Families.
