Queensland
Queensland was originally settled by indigenous Australians and Torres Strait Islanders some 40,000 years ago and by Europeans in the 1820s as a convict settlement as the Moreton Bay District of the Colony of New South Wales.
Convict transportation ended in 1839 and free settlement permitted in 1842.
In 1859 Queensland was separated from New South Wales to form a self-governing British colony. On federation in 1901, Queensland became one of the six states of the Commonwealth of Australia.
The capital of Queensland is Brisbane.

Records before 1859 properly form part of series held by relevant authorities in New South Wales where they may be indexed under the term "Moreton Bay District". Queensland has made copies of many of these family history records and these may be searched along with post 1859 records.
