The West Australian: Researcher delves into convict past. “The convict register includes details of the 2500 men who arrived in the district at differing stages of their prison sentences. Some arrived as probationer prisoners at the Geraldton Convict Hiring Depot or as members of road parties living in tents, some as ticket of leave men (parolees) and some whose sentences were almost over and were granted more freedom to move.”
