Series notes:
The purpose of these documents was to record the trade of the convict and how his or her skill was used. The basic details given therefore are name, trade and employer, which may include the settler to whom the convict was assigned, or the road gang or other government departments taking the convict. Sometimes the following additional details are given: age, where tried, sentence and native place. The lists, which concern both men and women, are alphabetical by initial of surname.

In CSO 1 and CSO 5 there are appropriation lists from 1832 to 1839 included in the general correspondence files, and many such documents (1824-1841) are held in the Mitchell Library, Sydney. Microfilm copies of the latter are held in the Archives Office of Tasmania at MM33.
