Person NameSelkirkshire Farmer Club; 1806-
ActivityThe Selkirkshire Farmer Club, was founded on the 11 June 1806 and had its first general meeting in July with 39 members. The main object of the monthly meetings was to discuss a topic of general farming interest. The club was formed at the suggestion of John Lang who became Secretary, being succeeded in turn by his son Andrew, grandson John, and his son, Patrick Sellar Lang. P S Lang resigned from the post in 1879 from Australia. He later founded a similar organisation in Melbourne. By 1894 the membership of the club had dwindled and it was suggested that the club be dissolved and that the surplus funds be donated to the Pastoral Society with the minute books deposited in the Free Library. However, the Club seems to have revived and the records continue until 1918.
