Abstract

Papers of Oscar Jones, solicitor of Murdoch & Jones Queenstown branch and his predecessor AL Williams, apparently found at Strathelie, formerly the Jones family home. The papers are business papers of the Queenstown branch of solicitors Murdoch & Jones, formerly Williams & Page, including mine share business. There are also a few personal papers of AL Williams and of Oscar Jones.The Queenstown practice was established by AL Williams in 1896. Later Charles Page became a partner and established an office at Zeehan. George Murdoch of the Stone Buildings, Hobart, later Murdoch and Jones, acted as Hobart agent and early in 1898 the two firms merged as Williams and Page of Hobart, Queenstown and Zeehan. In April 1899, however, Williams sold out to Murdoch and Jones, Oscar Jones managed the Queenstown branch and by July the firm's name was changed to Murdoch & Jones. Williams & Page remained in Zeehan, under C.S. Page.
