Report of the First Meeting of the Devonshire Association (Exeter 1862)

London: Taylor & Francis; Plymouth: W Brendon (1863), illus. 84 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Devonshire Association was founded in the great age of Victorian optimism when so much was being discovered and explored for the first time. The work of the British Association for the Advancement of Science provided the model for it. In 1861, William Pengelly FRS, advocated the establishment of a local association to be organised like the British Association but focused on Devon. He put the idea to two friends as they walked along Millbay Road in Plymouth on a geological expedition. This casual conversation resulted in the formation of the Association and the holding of its first meeting in Exeter in the following year. Membership was just 69.
