REMAINING OFFENDERS

Part One

Campbell Street Gaol Gate-book 

1873ó1890 

Compiled by Laurie Moody

Part 1

The following is the first part of a complete listing of the remaining male prisoners who have not yet featured in the various extracts.  These prisoners were confined in Campbell Street Gaol, Hobart or passed through the system between 1873 and 1890. Although a search of BDM records was undertaken for every prisoner mentioned this did not always provide information.  It should also be noted that ages entered in the gate-book often differ to the BDM records and unless otherwise stated, all prisoners, unless shown as transported, are regarded to be native-born although not necessarily in Tasmania. 

The use of Ďakaí indicates Ďalso known así, Van Diemenís Land appears as VDL, New South Wales as NSW, Campbell Street Gaol as CSG, Ticket of Leave as TOL, Conditional Pardon as CP, Hobart Supreme Court as HSC, Launceston Supreme Court as LSC, Launceston General Sessions as LGS, Births, Deaths and Marriages appear as BDM.  Females were only sent to CSG from 1888.  SS indicates steam ship. The use of [?] indicates possibly more than just one offence.
