Records of Brisbane Hospital (Qld)

The few surviving patient records for Brisbane Hospital ('Brisbane General' or 'Royal Brisbane') are held at at Queensland State Archives. They are very useful for genealogy and family history. Some patients came from distant parts of Queensland including Cairns, Charters Towers, Adavale, Tambo, Goondiwindi, Stanthorpe and Maryborough.

The three admission 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;  and name and address of relatives or friends, or remarks such as 'two brothers on the goldfields'. Some registers give extra details as explained below, and occasionally they name the father of an illegitimate child. A hospital register is sometimes the only surviving source of information about immigration.

I have indexed patients' names from these Brisbane Hospital records:

  • Admission register 1 Jan - 16 Mar 1887:  Register contents as above. Patients' names: see below.
  • Admission register 1 Jan - 14 Feb 1901:  Register contents as above, plus some details of employment, wages, other sources of income, other wage-earners in the family, property, and membership of clubs or benefit societies.
  • Admission register 26 Sep - 15 Nov 1902:  Register contents as for 1901.
  • Patient charts Jan-May 1900 only give age, religion, birthplace, occupation, marital status, how long in the colony, last residence, dates of admission and discharge, disease, and notes made by nursing staff.

NEW!  If you want to personally inspect the original records at the Archives instead of using my copying service, FindMyPast gives full source references.

Other Brisbane Hospital records include registers of cases and treatment 1837-1839 and 1858-1862, and registers of patients 1872-1873. Registers up to 1859 are indexed in the 'Queensland Early Pioneers Index 1824-1859' on FindMyPast. Registers for 1860-1862 and 1872-1873 can be located via finding aids at Qld State Archives. An admission register for 19 Aug - 19 Sep 1919 exists, but the Health Department has closed it until it is 100 years old.

Explanation of names below:

  • Date range:  1 January to 16 March 1887.
  • '-' or '...' means no surname was stated, or the name was illegible.
  • A question mark means the handwriting was difficult to decipher and the spelling is in doubt.
  • 'Ab' = Aboriginal or part Aboriginal.
  • 'SSI' = South Sea Islander.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'SHEA.
  • If there are several entries for a name, the same person may be mentioned several times or there may be more than one person with the same name. The only way to find out is to consult the original source. Obtain copies of all such entries, as some may give more details than others.
  • Scroll through the list. Names may have been spelled incorrectly in the records.
  • For names below, I can order copies from the original records; or (NEW) you can use FindMyPast to get exact source references, then personally inspect the original records at the Archives.

Copying service. Allow up to 8 weeks for a reply; I am often away for family reasons.

Did you know that the British Newspaper Archive is now on FindMyPast?

If you want to personally inspect the records at Qld State Archives instead of using my copying service, FindMyPast gives full source references.

As a professional genealogist, I can provide a copy from the original source. The fee is 'per entry', not 'per name', so if the same name is listed twice, that is two entries.

* If you live in Australia:  one entry $20, extra entries from this page $6 each (including postage).

* If you live overseas:  one entry AUD$23, extra entries from this page AUD$6 each (including postage).
