Queensland historian Jan Richardson specialises in the pre-Separation history of Moreton Bay, focusing on biographical and genealogical research of early residents. A Visiting Fellow with Griffith University’s Harry Gentle Resource Centre in 2020-2021, she created a database of female convicts and ex-convicts, along with their husbands, partners and children, who were some of Queensland’s first settlers following the closure of the Moreton Bay penal settlement in 1839. Jan is currently a PhD candidate at Griffith University researching the lives of non-Indigenous ethnic minorities, including Mauritian convicts and Chinese indentured labourers, who arrived in Queensland during the pre-separation period.
