Extract of Home Office transportation registers (The National Archives microfilm HO11)

extract from The Hobart Town Courier (Tas. : 1827 - 1839), p. 4. -David Jones, a prisoner. ‘I was in bed when the ship struck. I jumped out, and made my way to the hatchway. I did not see any shots fired, but I have heard that a prisoner was shot. Some shots were fired after I and many of the prisoners were on deck. I was forward when they were fired, and cannot tell who fired them.
