Agency Details

Agency Number: TA60
Title: CONVICT DEPARTMENT
Start Date: 01 Jan 1818
End Date: 31 Dec 1877
Description:

The Convict Department was part of the Imperial (as distinct from Colonial) establishment and was directly responsible to the Governor. By 1871 the number of Imperial convict (or ex-convicts in lunatic asylums) was so few that they were transferred to colonial custody, though their costs continued to be met out of Imperial funds. (For details, see the Guide to the Public Records of Tasmania, Section Three).
