These are very largely duplicates of the appropriate entries in CON 31
the convicts included here were not taken into the probation system of discipline, and these volumes were apparently compiled the better to keep track of them. Even though a convict had absconded in 1819 and nothing had been heard of him since, he is included here if his sentence had not expired by the date the volumes were compiled
the others have their offences and other details copied out from CON 31 (with varying accuracy up till 1844, when the entries become contemporary, and in some cases extend later than in the old conduct registers
many men were "struck off" in December 1853 if nothing were known of them, but even these entries sometimes record death, and entries as late as 1892 are present.
These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
