Research into Property and Residence
Valuation rolls are one way of determining the property owned by and lived in by Tasmanian residents. Research Tasmania has researched the 1858 valuation rolls.
Four indexes to the 1858 valuation rolls for Tasmania have been compiled and are available in book form. These provide the names of both owners and occupiers of residences in alphabetical order. The original records, published in the Hobart Town Gazette, only provide the information in street/town order.
