Link: City of Sydney Assessment Books 1845 to 1948
« on: Saturday 11 April 09 08:21 BST (UK) »
This link is for the City of Sydney Assessment Books, covering the CBD of Sydney and inner suburbs too from about 1845, and gives not just the name of the occupier, but a description of the property, house by house, the owner of the property, the value etc, and of course includes FEMALE names, which are not on electoral rolls until 1903 in Aust. - Also it is in pdf format and fully searchable, all for free!

So you can find your family, and see who the neighbours were and even figure out who was in higher valued houses, in some instances even if they had kitchen as an outhouse etc back in early years!!!

Oh and it has maps of the different wards, and covers period from say 1845, to 1948.
