Electoral rolls and directories

The politics of the critical 1850s meant that manhood suffrage was essentially granted to the people of Australia at a much earlier period than elsewhere. As a consequence, the electoral rolls serve as a virtual census return of males from that period onwards. Women also gained suffrage at the beginning of the twentieth century, much earlier than their sisters overseas. Other lists of individuals can be found in the various directories published from the 1830s onwards.
