A list of convicts

Subject: Hi to all on the list,

I thought some of you may be interested in this list of convicts who were to be transported from Sydney to Port Macquarie and Moreton Bay on December 26, 1832. I came across this during the course of my research and I have included the Colonial Secretary's letter accompanying the list. I don't have any further information on the convicts mentioned but this should be available at the State Archives Office in Sydney.

Colonial Secretary's Office,
Sydney, 26 December 1832.


In transmitting to you the accompanying list of thirty one Prisoners/Specials and others under order of removal to Port Macquarie. I am directed to request that they may be immediately embarked onboard the Isabella, and that in like manner, the fifteen male and two female prisoners whose names are also annexed, may be shipped from the Hulk and the Goal on board the same vessel for conveyance under sentence to Moreton Bay. You will be pleased to take care that the men are properly ironed and that all are carefully searched.

Signed Alex McLeay.
