Founding of the Society
Year
Authority / Notes
1771
This date is supported by Hume, pp.172-173, where Hume also indicates "At various periods, other Societies of less importance have been united with it, so that its members are very numerous. Thus, in 1782, the CHIRURGO-MEDICAL SOCIETY was joined with it; in 1796, the AMERICAN PHYSICAL; in 1799, the HIBERNIAN MEDICAL; in 1803, the CHEMICAL; in 1812, the NATURAL HISTORY; and in 1813, the DIDACTIC SOCIETY."

There is a book in the Harvard Univ. cat. with the title: The laws of the Royal Physical Society; instituted at Edinburgh July 2, 1771. And confirmed by royal charter, May 5, 1788. As revised by a committee after its union with the American Physical Society in 1796. With the amendments and additions made since that time ... (Edinburgh, Printed by T. Ross and Sons, M,DCC,XCVIII). It is unclear whether there is any relationship between the American Physical Society mentioned here and the American Physical Society () founded in 1899.

The Illinet cat. contains the following note in its Authority Record Display for the Royal Physical Society of Edinburgh: "Founded 1771 as Physico-chirurgical Society; name changed shortly thereafter to Physical Society; royal charter granted in 1778, since which time known as Royal Physical Society of Edinburgh. Its Catalogus librorum, in bibliotheca Societatis Regiae Physicae Edinburgenae, 1799.NUC pre-56 (Royal Physical Society of Edinburgh) "
