Uncollected Tickets of Leave
During the Convict Era,the Administration Department for Convicts in Tasmania kept a watchful eye on the whereabouts and behaviour of their convicts.Particularly prior to 1840, the newspapers are an incredibly useful source in obtaining information on convicts.
Convict Ships and their arrivals were regularly reported, behaviour of convicts, good bad or elsewise, was often reported in the papers as an example of what could be achieved through good behaviour or what would result from bad.
Promotions of convicts to the Constable class are regularly reported in the columns,as also is Transfers of prisoners between Settlers/Landowners who wished to exchange their assigned prisoners to make better use of their indivual services and skills
Lists of Convicts who recieved Tickets of Leaves, Conditional Pardons, and Certificates of Freedom, are also often reported, as is also the loss of these certificates for bad behaviour.
Convicts appearing in Court Cases commonly feature in court reports, and this can often give a better insight in to the conditions faced by convicts.
