NRS 1155 Musters and other papers relating to convict ships

These papers usually came from England on the transport. The lists of convicts generally show only name, date and place of trial, and sentence. They are sometimes copies of the indentures with the owner of the ship contracting to transport convicts, or a muster taken before embarkation or just before or just after disembarkation. The other papers are miscellaneous - lists of deaths during the voyage, convicts to be employed in the iron'd gangs, warrants to transport military prisoners, lists of free settlers on board, etc. Occasionally there are letters about a convict after arrival.
