The Aboriginal population at the time of British settlement in 1803 has been estimated at approximately 5,000 or more but through persecution (see Black War and Black Line) and disease much of the population was eradicated. Until the 1970s, most people thought that the last surviving Tasmanian Aborigine was Trugernanner who died in 1876

The last full-blooded Tasmanian died on Flinders Island in 1888, but a Tasmanian lingua franca continued to be used until 1905, with the death of the last known speaker, Fanny Cochrane Smith. Tasmanian Aborigines today speak English.
