Police gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. You can expect the Tasmanian Police Gazettes (in the earliest years called Reports of Crime) to include the following information that will usually list names and sometimes personal details, descriptions with photograph, addresses and/or occupations may be an added bonus for the researcher:

  • apprehensions
  • convict returns
  • disciplining of police
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • housebreakers and burglars
  • licensed carriers, hawkers, oyster fishers, and tanners
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • murderers and their victims
  • police resignations
  • prisoners discharged from gaols and released on tickets of leave
  • property and stock recovered
  • rewards - names of persons offering a reward
  • victims of arson
  • victims of horse and cattle stealing or straying
  • victims of lost or stolen property
  • victims of sheep stealing or straying

A unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia, Police Gazettes really are an underused source. Containing the names, dates and events of 1000s of happeneings throughout the year, your ancestors may well have been mentioned.
