Women granted protection orders

Family historians often have difficulty finding information about women, especially in nineteenth century records. One unusual source is a register of protection orders. It gives the woman's name, when the protection order was granted, by which Court, and the registration date.

Explanation of names below:

  • Date range:  3 Aug 1888 - 6 Jan 1904.
  • '...' means that I could not decipher some letters.
  • A question mark means handwriting was very difficult to read, so the spelling is in doubt.
  • Names beginning with 'Mc' precede other 'M' surnames.
  • Apostrophes have been removed from names such as O'RIELLY.
  • Scroll through the list, as names may have been spelled incorrectly in the records.
  • For names below, I can supply copies of original records (this link leads to instructions).

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

As a professional genealogist, I've spent thousands of hours indexing original records, and it also takes time to travel to a record office, order a bundle/volume, find the relevant file/page, order photocopies or take digital photos, and send them to you; so I charge fees for these services:

Option 1:  If you want me to copy the original document, my fee is $10 for one entry plus $2 for each additional entry requested at the same time. If the same name is listed (above) twice, that is two entries. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).

Option 2:  I will (for a fee of $3 total for up to 5 surnames) provide source references (the record office, its location number for the source, and approximate date) so you can do the work yourself. See how to send requests and payment (my email address is on that page).
