Information Sources


This series of registers controls Supreme Court, Southern District, Brisbane Writ Files 1872-1991 and Matrimonial Petitions 1872-1976 (even though after 1961 the latter were filed separately).

For each entry, the index provides summary information including year in which the writ or petition was served, writ number, name of the plaintiff/litigant and the name of the defendant. From 1933 onwards all matrimonial petitions are noted in the left hand column of the index, to distinguish these from other writs. Entries for a particular letter of the alphabet may continue at the end of the index if space runs out. Between 1970 and 1976 common writ entries are marked "W" and matrimonial petitions are marked "M.P." Matrimonial petition entries cease altogether in 1977.
