People arrested & victims of crime: Cloncurry (Qld)

This page lists names of offenders in Cloncurry watchhouse, and victims of crime mentioned in watchhouse records, for part of 1874-1876 and 1887-1891. The records are useful for genealogy and local history.

The names include people charged at Cloncurry, prisoners in the watchhouse overnight en route from other places (including Boulia and Croydon), victims of crime, and neglected children taken into custody.

Details shown in the records usually include date and hour of apprehension;  prisoner's name, age, occupation, country or State of origin, religion and level of educationoffence;  previous convictions if known;  property found on prisoner;  signature of person receiving the property (often the prisoner);  how the case was disposed of (fine, imprisonment, discharged, remanded, sent to asylum / hospital, committed for sentence at which court and when);  and sometimes bail details.

For people mentioned in watchhouse charge books, more details are often in Court, prison and mental asylum records, criminal depositions, murder files, Police Gazettes and other police records.

Other suggestions

Copying service

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, take digital photos and send them to you.

* If you want a digital image of the original document (sent via the Internet), my fee is usually $18 for one entry plus $10 for each additional entry requested at the same time; but if there are more than three entries for exactly the same name, ask for a discount. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).

* If you want to get the copies yourself, 'Index to Persons Arrested and Victims of Crime, Qld: Cloncurry pre-1900' is now available as an e-book in PDF format. See 'Publications'.

Other Suggestions

Police Gazettes.

Prison records.

Published indexes (Mining Leases Index 1871-1940; Cloncurry Cemetery Burial Register Index 1898-1994; Cloncurry Lawn Cemetery Burial Register Index 1963-1995; Cloncurry Memorials Burial Records Index 1861-1985; Cloncurry Advocate; Cloncurry News & Mt. Isa Record).

Police watchhouse records for other areas.

Court, prison and mental asylum records, criminal depositions, murder files, other police records, etc (described on this site or in my book Tips for Queensland Research).

Specialist Indexes in Australia: a genealogist's guide mentions an index to Cloncurry bank journals.

My other genealogy sites have additional advice and names.
