Government gazettes for a particular locality eventually become standardised with the type of material listed. In the 1870s you can expect the Government Gazettes to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes name of emigrant vessel, addresses and/or occupations:

  • appointees to government positions
  • appointments of magistrates and Justices of the Peace
  • appointments of returning officers
  • crown land leases
  • deceased estates
  • dissolution of business partnerships
  • insolvents
  • notices or rewards for lost or stolen property and stock
  • property owners subject to compulsory land acquisition by government
  • purchasers of land lodging caveats under Real Property Act
  • unclaimed letters
  • unclaimed property (railways)
  • witnesses to executions

Gazettes are published by governments and their agencies as a means of communication to officials and the general public. As such they are useful, not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as far as family historians are concerned, they are valuable primary source documents.

Example entry taken from the 2 July 1881 issue:

In the Supreme Court of Queensland.
ON the Twenty-fifth day of July, A.D. 1881, at Ten o'clock in the forenoon, George William Kettle, of Emerald, adjudicated insolvent on the seventeenth day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy-nine, will apply to the Supreme Court of Queensland, in Insolvency, at Brisbane, for a Certificate of Discharge.
Dated this 27th day of June, A.D. 1881.
