These registers have a two-line entry for each application. The information listed is: applicant's surname and given name; an extra identifier (if two convicts arrived on the same ship and had the same name); the name of the ship the convict arrived on, or 'free' if the person was not a convict; the date of the application; the reference number for the application; the reference number for the marriage record if this has been included.
