The Society was established in 1793 and held innovative meetings including a demonstration of electric lighting by Sir Joseph Swan in 1880. Women members were admitted in 1804, and Robert Stephenson was President between 1855 and 1859. Rooms in the Bolbec Hall were let out to provide an income for the Society.
