Cooktown (Queensland)

Residents who signed a petition in 1874

In October 1874 the people listed below (householders of Cooktown in north Qld) signed a petition that Cooktown be declared a municipality. This source is valuable for genealogy and family history, especially if the signature on the original document is the only surviving example of your ancestor's handwriting.

Explanation of names below:

  • Scroll through the list. Names may have been spelled incorrectly in the records.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'GRADY.
  • For names below, I can obtain copies of the original records (this link leads to instructions).

Copying service. Allow several weeks for a reply (I am often away).

Genealogy is my business (not just a hobby), so I charge fees for my time, regardless of the result. I've spent over 35 years learning about (and indexing) original records, and it takes time/money to consult my index, travel to a record office in Brisbane, find the relevant bundle/volume and file/page, and send you the results.

Option 1:  If you want a digital image of the original document (sent via the Internet), I charge a flat fee of $8 (regardless of the number of names). If you need traditional paper photocopies, or digital images posted on a USB thumb drive or a CD, extra fees apply (see Delivery Options). See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).

Option 2:  I will, for a flat fee of $2, tell you the source reference (the record office, its location number for the source, and approximate date) so you can go do the work yourself in Brisbane. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).
