Government gazettes for a particular locality eventually become standardised with the type of material listed. In the 1890s 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

Example entry taken from the 14 May, 1892 issue:
Colonial Secretary 's Office,
Brisbane , 5th May, 1892.
IT is hereby notified, that a Reward of 200 will be paid for information which may lead to the apprehension and conviction of the person or persons who, on or about the 12th of April ultimo, near Longreach, unlawfully and maliciously shot three horses, the property of certain teamsters.

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.

A fascinating read for all with an interest in Victoria and its people at this time. This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole years worth of issues of the original issues. It has been bookmarked for easy navigation. and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
