Recollections of an old hand in Colonial Queensland. — 2 Comments

  1. You have inspired me Marg Doherty. One of my gggrandfather’s George Evans arrived in the colony around 1846 and was a brickmaker, so how wonderful to have written recollections of life in the colony by your ggranduncle. I love Tom Petrie’s Reminisences of Early Queensland as well. Interesting about the Churches of early Brisbane. Maybe the “old Government Barn” is where Geo Evans married his Irish Catholic wife. Your blog should be of great interest for anyone with relatives who lived in Moreton Bay Coloney around that time. Thanks so much for your story.
