Norfolk Island: the first settlement, 1788-1814
Many convicts and soldiers who arrived in the early years of settlement spent time on Norfolk Island until, in the first decade of the 1800s, the authorities decided to close the settlement and transfer the settlers to Tasmania. A wealth of documents have survived for this period containing information about those resident on the island. This seminar covers the type of records and other sources available, their contents and where they can be located.
