The Ancient Order of Foresters, which originated in England in the mid 1700s, was established at various branches in Australia from the c.1840s. Foresters was set up as a non-profit organisation, the founding principles of the Society being to provide financial and social benefits as well as support to members and their families in times of unemployment, sickness, death, disability and old age. The society set up a Court (branch) in Parramatta, known as the Pride of Australia. The Society is now known as the Foresters Friendly Society and in July 1999 was incorporated as a public company limited by shares and guarantee.
