Ingham (Qld) Hospital Admission Registers

Ingham Hospital admission registers are very useful for genealogy and family history. Though not all were completed in full, the registers have space for these details (which, if supplied by the patient, may be more accurate than those on a death certificate):

name;  date admitted;  age;  birthplace;  occupation;  religion;  ship of arrival;  how long in colony;  place of residencemarital status;  place of marriage, at what age, and name of spouse;  names and ages of children living;  number and sex of children deceasedfather's name and occupationfather's present residence if living (or 'father dead');  mother's maiden name;  disease or reason for admission;  date of discharge or date and cause of death;  sometimes additional remarks (medical history, social circumstances etc.)

Note the provision for ship of arrival, place of residence, marital status, and father's present residence - details not found on a Qld death certificate. A hospital register is sometimes the only surviving source of information about immigration.

Explanation of names below:

  • Date range:  20 Aug 1889 - 22 May 1890.
  • Scroll through the list. Many names were spelled incorrectly in the registers.
  • '...' means that no surname was stated, or the name was illegible.
  • A question mark means handwriting was difficult to decipher, and the spelling is in doubt.
  • 'Ab' = Aboriginal or part Aboriginal.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'NEILL.
  • If there is more than one entry for a name, the same person may be mentioned more than once, or there may be several people with the same name. The only way to find out is to consult the original source. Obtain copies of *all* such entries (some may be more detailed or more accurate than others).
  • For names below, I can supply copies of the original records (this link leads to instructions).

Other suggestions

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

Genealogy is my business, so I charge fees for my time (regardless of the result). I've spent 35 years learning about original records, and indexing them. It also takes time and money to consult my index, travel to a record office in Brisbane, find the relevant bundle/register and file/page, and send the results.

Option 1:  I can supply a copy of the original records. If the same name is listed (above) twice, that is two entries. Order ALL entries for the name! Often one is incorrect, incomplete or illegible but another gives full and accurate details. See the price list / order form. It has a link to a page explaining how to send requests and payment.

Option 2:  I will (for a fee of $5 for one SURNAME plus $2 per additional SURNAME) provide source references (the record office, its location numbers for the registers, and approximate dates) so you can do the work yourself. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).




Other Suggestions

Records for other hospitals, and rules and conditions for patients in the old days.

My other genealogy sites have additional advice and names.
