Women who applied to protect their earnings from their husband

Family historians often have difficulty finding information about women, especially in nineteenth century records. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, a woman who was supporting herself 'by her own industry' could apply to the Court to protect her future earnings from her husband (for example, if he 'spent all his money on drink'). I've identified several series of historical records with information about Queensland women who made such an application. This is an on-going project, and more names will be added as indexing continues.

As suggested by website visitors, this index has been merged with several others so that searches take less time. The names are now in the 'Interim Index'.
