British Convict transportation registers 1787-1867 (hosted by State Library of QLD)

The State Library of Queensland has complied this database from The HO 11 Criminal  Convict Transportation Registers (HO 11) records which are available on microfilm as part of the Australian Joint Copying Project (AJCP). 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. 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.
