Series notes:
None of these documents is registered in any way

they were not apparently considered of comparable importance to the documents kept in the "Iron Chest" (see under CSO60 and CSO61), and a note on the cover of one reads: "I forward this as a specimen of the condition in which many of the papers and documents in the Colonial Secretary's Office are from the ravages of rats and other vermin which abound in that wretched building. J[ohn]. B[urnett]. 26 April 1830". The documents include grant deeds, mortgages, cancelled grant deeds, applications for publicans' licences, conveyances, surrenders, disclaimers, declarations of trust, releases, warrants of appointment

also several estrays, such as isolated pieces of correspondence and sentences. There is no index.

These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
