This volume of papers, the sixteenth published by Brisbane History Group, comprises twelve contributions by amateur, professional and academic historians on the origin and development of Brisbane. While centring on the seminal 1840s of free settlement, these papers range from the 1820s to 1860s. In particular this collection places Brisbane Town within regional context of the Moreton Bay district. At the same time it portrays the crucial role of people in the pioneering process, as groups or individuals, whether squatters, settlers or surveyors. These were true founders of Brisbane. The localities treated in this volume include: Brisbane from convict to free settlement and separation from New South Wales. North Brisbane, South Brisbane, Kangaroo Point and Bulimba development. Ipswich and its journalists in relation to Brisbane. The Darling Downs to upper Brisbane Valley occupied by squatters. The Moreton Bay district as a whole.
