State Library of Queensland: The British convict transportation registers 1787-1867 database has been compiled from the HO 11 Criminal - Convict Transportation Registers series of British Home Office records. Over 123,000 out of the estimated 160,000 convicts transported to Australia are recorded in this database. These include prisoners sent to New South Wales, Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), Moreton Bay (Brisbane), Western Australia and Norfolk Island. Also recorded are some ships which were bound for Gibraltar. The records cover the period of 1787 to 1867. You may find the following information on each entry: Name of convict, including any known aliases, Place of trial [The date of trial is recorded on the original registers and will be gradually added to this database], Term of sentence, Name of ship and date of departure, Place of arrival, Miscellaneous notes e.g. Died at sea; Ticket of Leave, etc. These records mainly include those convicted in England and Scotland. Only a small number of Irish convicts appear in this series of the Home Office records. The database also includes soldiers who had been court-martialled and sentenced to transportation. These "soldier convicts" may have been convicted in various British colonies including the West Indies, India, Pakistan and Canada.
