These registers record time served in various stages of punishment, the accumulation of credit marks by task work, and of money earned.
Offences, meritorious conduct and remissions are noted. Many prisoners are not originally transported, and the second volume records many as being transferred to Hobart on 17 April 1877, when Port Arthur was closed. The arrangement is roughly alphabetical and the first volume has a separate index in it.
These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
