Information Sources


These registers of local names, including place names and names of farms and selection leases, were compiled by Mr. Herbert Williams, Notings Officer, as a "life-time part-time" project. When he retired from the office, subsequent Notings Officers added to the registers, the entries of which were revised and rewritten, (A-P only) into a loose-leaf register (A/35393). Details in these registers include: name, portion no., parish and abbreviations for pastoral holdings P.H., railway stations R.S., state schools S.S., polling places P.P., electoral districts and divisions, post offices P.O., and Land Agent's districts L.A.D. At the end of the register N - Z (A/35392), there is a second list of names for creeks and gullies from letters A to S, which are identified by parish and occasionally by portion number. A list of Queensland shires and their addresses has been inserted in this register along with a memorandum dated 19 Apr 1973, regarding the rewriting and revision of the gazetteer.
