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 order copies of original records at Qld State Archives (this link leads to instructions).
