St Heliers Convict Register

This volume covers the 1830 and 1840 records of the convicts who arrived at St Heliers Station. When a new convict arrived his particulars were entered into this register. The particulars cover ship, sentence, date of arrival, native place, trade, year of birth, height, complexion, eyes and general remarks. The general remarks cover information not available elsewhere. Also included are details on hired servants. These details are not available elsewhere.
The book has the potential to provide so much new information about the convicts assigned to St Heliers, the attitude toward the convicts and how they responded.
The journal was transcribed by Mr Rob Tickle and the above words are taken from his introduction.
