A valuable primary source of information, Police Gazettes provided information and instructions to members of the police force. Issued approximately once a week, you can expect the Tasmanian Police Gazettes to include the following information:

  • apprehensions
  • convict returns
  • disciplining of police
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • housebreakers and burglars
  • licensed carriers
  • 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
  • prisoners released on tickets of leave
  • property 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

Far from being just a unique and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians - the Police Gazettes are useful for anyone with an interest in Tasmania in the 1870s. The CD contains all issues that were released during that year.

Example entry taken from the 5 January 1877 issue:

Missing Friends
Information is requested respecting a woman named Mary Ann Adams, who was transported from Surry, England, about 32 years ago. She subsequently married in this Colony a convict names William Neigheny. Communicate with this Office.

Containing high quality scanned images of the whole years worth of issues, this CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
