The author, using various published and unpublished documents, has assembled together in this book, valuable information on Norfolk Island's inhabitants in the early part of the 1800s. What appears to have triggered him to think of writing this work is the actual difficulty a researcher faces in tracing back family history to the early period in Norfolk Island's history. The Island's records usually mention children of convicts by their mother's surname, but this does not provide much help in tracing later descendants. This book lists 3000 people and their families on Norfolk Island to late 1813.

Set out in column format column one lists name, column two lists the ship, column three gives the date of arrival, and the fourth column lists the date of departure. The book is listed alphabetically by surname.

The first column contains the name of every person listed on the victualling lists 1788, 1791, 1792, 1793, 1794, 1795, 1796, 1802, 1803, 1804, 1805, 1806, 1807, 1808, 1809, 1810, 1811 and 1812, the 1805 census (main document), land grants, birth, death and marriage records, diaries, papers and some literary sources.
