People arrested & victims of crime: south-west Qld

Surnames beginning with A - J (or no surname)

This page has part 1 of a list of people from many parts of south-west Queensland who are mentioned in Police Department, Charleville Station records, which are useful for genealogy and local history. The list includes offenders, victims, and people into whose care neglected children were placed.

  • Register of persons received in the lockup Jan 1889 - Jan 1893: date of arrest, age, level of education, religion, occupation, country or State of origin, offence, how the case was disposed of (fine, imprisonment, discharged, remanded, sent to hospital/asylum, committed for sentence at which court and when), remarks.
  • Physical description of certain prisoners Dec 1890 - circa Oct 1892.
  • Register of persons arrested Jan 1901 - Feb 1904 at Charleville, Cunnamulla, Thargomindah, Adavale, Augathella, Eromanga, Eulo, Hungerford, Morven, Nocundra, Wooroorooka, Wyandra and Upper Warrego: date of arrest, occupation, religion, offence, and how the case was disposed of.

More details are likely to be in other sources (Court, prison or mental asylum records, criminal depositions, murder files, Police Gazettes, etc.)

Explanation of names below:

  • Date range:  Jan 1889 - Jan 1893 plus Jan 1901 - Feb 1904.
  • Includes offenders, victims, and people into whose care neglected children were placed. Police officers are listed if they were victims of assault etc.
  • 'see' / 'or' usually indicate either an alias or an alternative interpretation of the handwriting;  'other' means someone other than a prisoner or victim.
  • '...' means that I could not decipher some letters.
  • A question mark means handwriting was very difficult to read so the spelling is in doubt.
  • 'Ab' = Aboriginal or part Aboriginal.
  • Some abbreviated names ('Jas' for James, 'Jno' for John etc.) are indexed as they appear in the records, and some have been expanded.
  • 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 inspect the original source.
  • Scroll through the list. Names may have been spelled incorrectly in the records.
  • For names below, you can obtain copies from the original records.

* Names beginning with K - Z

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

As a professional genealogist, Archives research is how I earn a living, so...

If you want me to go to the Archives and copy the original record, my fee is $15 for one entry and $8 for each additional entry. If the same name is listed twice, that is two entries. The fee covers out-of-pocket expenses plus my time (eg, travel, and finding, copying and sending the information). See how to send requests and payment.
