Convict transportation registers database

The Convict transportation registers 1787-1867 database has been compiled from the British Home Office (HO) records which are available on microfilm. You can find details for over 123 000 of the estimated 160 000 convicts transported to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries - names, term of years, transport ships and more. More information is available about this convict database.

Please note: The original records on which this database is based is not an exhaustive list of all convicts sent to Australia.

The index

contains over 1000 convicts who were convicted at the Bristol Assizes.
Details such as the ship they came on, the date the ship left England, the
length of the sentences and the place they were sent to are listed.
