In 1984, Christina Hardyment had written an account of her own investigations into the real-life places and real-life people in Arthur Ransome's stories As a direct result of this book, Arthur Ransome and Captain Flint's Trunk, people interested in forming a society dedicated to Arthur Ransome had been leaving their contact details at Abbot Hall, where, following his death in 1967, his widow Evgenia had donated various articles, including his writing desk In 1989, Christina followed up on these contact details by sending an appeal for funds to restore the dilapidated Mavis, the supposed prototype for Arthur Ransome's Amazon The response to this appeal was overwhelming and in June 1990 The Arthur Ransome Society was formed

A particularly large sum came from the Arthur Ransome Club ARC of Japan The ceremony was attended by Christina Hardyment, Tamami Nakayama of ARC and Brigit Sanders née Altounyan, a prototype of the character Bridget Walker Brigit Sanders subsequently became President of TARS

In 1997, the society was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee
