TA60 CONVICT DEPARTMENT 01 Jan 1818 31 Dec 1877
Description (Content/Function):

Included in this series are men and women who were sentenced to transportation by colonial courts having been free, either by servitude or having arrived free in the colony; some individuals were not sentenced even to transportation, but (e.g.) by Quarter Sessions. These latter are therefore not in the Conduct Registers (CON 31-43). Many are to be found in CON37 or in CON35. There is no very clear-cut criterion for the inclusion of individuals in these volumes.
