Notes

1 Significant changes to seats occurred at the 1886 election, with several old seats abolished and a net gain of four seats.
2 In February 1887, the Attorney-General and member for one of the two South Hobart seats, John Dodds, resigned. Andrew Inglis Clark won the resulting by-election on 4 March 1887.
3 On 15 February 1887, Richard Lucas, one of the two members for Kingborough, was appointed Attorney-General in James Agnew's Ministry. He was therefore required to resign and contest a ministerial by-election in his seat. On 15 March 1887, an Opposition candidate, Henry Gill, defeated Lucas at the by-election. The Agnew ministry subsequently fell and Philip Fysh was invited to form a government, which took office on 29 March 1887.
4 Following the Fysh ministry's appointment on 29 March 1887, the new ministers were required to resign and contest ministerial by-elections. All were returned unopposed a week later.
5 In May 1887, the member for Glenorchy, Alfred Dobson, resigned. John Hamilton won the resulting by-election on 20 June 1887.
6 On 29 October 1888, the member for West Devon and Minister for Lands and Works, Edward Braddon, resigned to take up the role of Agent-General for Tasmania in London. John McCall won the resulting by-election on 12 November 1888. Alfred Pillinger replaced Braddon in the Ministry and was returned unopposed at a ministerial by-election on 6 November 1888.
7 On 21 January 1889, the member for Sorell, James Gray, died. Charles Featherstone won the resulting by-election on 11 February 1889.
8 On 1 April 1889, the member for Campbell Town, William Brown, resigned. William Bennett won the resulting by-election on 30 April 1889.
9 On 18 December 1890, the member for New Norfolk, George Huston, died. George Leatham won the resulting by-election on 13 January 1891.
10 On 5 February 1891, one of the two members for East Devon, James Dooley, died. Henry Murray won the resulting by-election held later in the month.
