flag Convicts & Deserters

Some time ago Terry Callaghan commenced a project of extracting from the Government Gazette and other sources the names of convicts who had had their ticket of leave (tol) cancelled for various reasons as against existing sources that just listed the granting of tol. At the same time he noticed that there was also information available concerning soldiers who had deserted.

He did enter over 1000 names together with the details such as age, ship of arrival, native place, occupation, date and place of enlistment and the description of the 'offenders'.

In the process however, he found that the information had been gathered by others so rather than duplicate what had already been done he did not proceed with the project.

He still has the data and if it may be of interest to you follow this link.
