Information Sources


This series consists mainly of petitions and affidavits verifying suitability of persons appointed Commissioners of the Supreme Court for taking affidavits in Queensland. Other documents may include the actual authority to act as a Commissioner, details of the commission's limitations, some correspondence, certificates of qualifications, etc. Most files up to 1961 include a bundle of related correspondence and revised lists of Commissioners for each one of those years (correspondence and lists for 1952-1954 is attached to the files for 1954; correspondence and lists for 1956-1957 is attached to the files for 1957).

There are two separate bundles of files for 1893, one related to Commissioners appointed to issue writs and one related to Commissioenrs appointed to take affidavits. Between 1894 and 1898 these two kinds of files are interfiled. There are separate registers related to this series:

As an item of interest, the files of 1942 contain correspondence between the Offices of the Prime Minister of Australia and the Premier of Queensland regarding appointees for taking affidavits within the Defence Forces abroad.
