Benalla Rate Books
Information recorded between 1869 and 1944 in the old Benalla Rate Books has been extracted into digital format and 'Trades and Business' people from this period are now searchable.
The information contained in these books is unique and only available in Benalla.
Digital information currently available exceeds 41,300 entries and as digitising work continues the total number of entries will more than double perhaps treble.
The sort of information that you can expect to find in the data includes the person's name, occupation, the size of the property and its location. To get easy access to this information either visit the Research Centre or complete a Request for Research form.
Access the index for a name, occupation, rateable property or work place and the location in the rate book. The rate books contain more information including the size of the property with its owner or occupier (it may have been leased or rented hence the lesse and lessor name) and the title reference. Names: a-b, c, d-e, f-g, h-i-j, k-l, m-n, o-q, r-s, t-u, v-z
Information currently being extracted, concerns all 'Graziers', 'Gentlemen' and 'Retired' people- Keep checking for latest updates.
