Series notes:
These lists refer to the male convicts who arrived on the Lady East (arrived 9 April 1825), Eden (2) (5 July 1842) and Duchess of Northumberland (18 January 1843). The first includes details of age, offence, where and when convicted, sentence, married or single, trade and character given by the gaoler, as well as remarks on conduct during the voyage, while the others confine themselves to the latter. The lists for the Eden and the Duchess of Northumberland are subdivided according to the hulk from which the convicts came, and there is an additional list of men by the latter ship who distinguished themselves by good conduct. There are some Surgeons' Lists in the Dixson Collection
