Port Phillip District and Victorian settlers - various indexes, 1841 to 1857
 
Unclaimed letters, 1843

at the Melbourne General Post Office, 1843

Melbourne Times, 7 Jan 1843

"Post Office, Melbourne
31 December 1842
List of Letters lying in this office, unclaimed, accumulated since last publication of a list"

List prepared by Lenore Frost
Webpage created 7 August 2003
Updated 12 November 2003


What are your chances of locating any of the above unclaimed mail?    Nil.  The list below was published in the Melbourne Times in 1843.  Unclaimed mail was held at the Melbourne Post Office for a month, then lists such as this were advertised in the Victorian Government Gazette/newspapers.  Any letters which remained unclaimed for a further six months were then destroyed.  Probably a lot of the mail was actually collected once the addressees knew there was some waiting for them.

Denis Strangman has a good explanation on his Lamplough webpage of the use of these unclaimed mail lists.
