    Usage notes

    Gaol'' was the more common spelling between about 1760 and 1830,https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=gaol%2Cjail&year_start=1700&year_end=2000&corpus=15 and is still preferred in proper names in some regions. Most Australian newspapers use (m) rather than ''gaol''''', citing either narrower print width or the possibility of transposing letters in ''gaol'' to produce ''goal''.'''1996 , Sally A. White, ''Reporting in Australia , page 275
