Details of DS/84
Reference: DS/84
Title: Doncaster Club records

Two institutions have used this title. The first Doncaster Club originated as a dining club for the local gentry and nobility not later than 1782, and met in the Red Lion and then at the Angel Inn in Doncaster. It appears to have lapsed around 1821. The second club was established in 1870 and acquired premises of its own, first in Hallgate, running in conjunction with the Subscription News Rooms (some of whose records are to be found here) and then at two successive addresses in Regent Square, Doncaster. Declining membership obliged the club to close in January 1999. It appears to have inherited the records of the earlier Doncaster Club, although there is no apparent link between the two. Doncaster Club: register of members 1783-1821; rules 1791; minutes 1792-1801, 1807-1818; Doncaster Club of 1870: minutes 1873-1999; rules 1901-1996; membership 1870-1997; visitors 1870-1998; accounts including annual accounts 1875-1997; papers of secretary 1902-1998; Doncaster Subscription Newsroom : proposal book for membership 1829-1853; accounts 1839-1907; visitors books 1861-1911; Doncaster Whist Club minutes (one meeting only) 1817
