Written in 1935 to celebrate the centenary of the establishment of the Presbytery of Van Dieman’s Land

Written in 1935 to celebrate the centenary of the establishment of the Presbytery of Van Dieman’s Land, the Rev J Heyer has recorded "many interesting facts and incidents" of the development of the Presbyterian church in Tasmania.

The initial part of the work covers the Presbyterial history – the historical background, the pioneer ministers, the relationship between the church and the state, education, and missions. This is followed by a history of the various congregations – St Andrews (Hobart), Bothwell, Kirklands-Campbell Town, St Andrews (Launceston), Oatlands, Evandale, Sorell, O’Brien’s Bridge (Glenorchy), St Johns (Hobart), West Tamar, Swansea & Gala Kirk, Chalmers Church (Launceston), Chalmers Church (Hobart), Hagley-Deloraine-Longford, Stanley, Scottsdale-Lilydale-Derby, Fingal, Devonport-Ulverstone, Zeehan, Queenstown, New Town, Burnie and Waratah.

An Appendix lists the ministers, where they served and their years of service as well as short biographies for more than 30 of them.

The Rev. Alexander Hardie, M.A., was born in Stirling, Scotland, in 1856 ; graduated at the University of Glasgow ; arrived in Australia in 1886. In the following year he accepted the joint charges of Moulamein and Balranald in New South Wales. In 1889, he came to Tasmania, to Oatlands and Hagley as recorded, serving the Tasmanian Church with great helpfulness until 1897 when he was called Kilmore. Ten years later he was translated to Heidelberg, where he was in office for 18 years. He retired from the active ministry in 1925, but continued to serve the Church in various useful ways until his death early in January of this year.
