The following index is to references to some convicts and free persons marrying in the year 1843 in Tasmania.It is not a list of ALL such persons, just some of those available in newspaper articles mentioned in the Cornwall Chronicle.
The marriages may not have taken place, the Governer was simply giving his permission for them to occur, it was common for convicts to apply for permission to marry several times, permission to marry may have been denied on conditions such as behaviour, further convictions,sobriety etc.
One lady is known to have applied to marry five husbands over two years!
At least one of each couple below mentioned was a convict.

The usual information given is,eg:-
Date:Joseph Benjamin, free, and
Mary Gale, per Gilbert Henderson, assigned service, Longford,

In Accordance with the Act of Council 6th Victoria, No 18,
I hereby give notice that his Excellency the Lieutenant-
Governer has been pleased to approve of the solemnization of
