Such is fame
« on: Monday 03 December 18 22:31 GMT (UK) »
It is 180 years ago, this week, that my convict ancestor was a patient in the convict hospital at Moreton Bay. The surviving hospital records reveal the usual intimate details as well as the reason he was admitted.  He had been hit on the head by a beam. I assume it was while he was working as a sawyer. Sadly subsequent records show he then suffered from epilepsy.

The Supreme Court now stands on the original hospital site in Brisbane.

Links to the past are there, somewhere - and a lot of luck.
