Registers of prisoners committed and tried - Adelaide Gaol 1839 - 1849
This series consists of registers recording prisoners awaiting trial in the Adelaide Gaol, as well as those who were committed for trial in and subsequently tried in the gaol. Information includes name, age, crime, whether in gaol or bailed, when committed for trial, when tried and how disposed of (ie: verdict and, if found guilty, details of sentence). The series is arranged chronologically and relates to felonious offences such as theft and murder.
Note: The second volume (formerly GRG 54/24a) records prisoners committed for trial from March 1839 to January 1849 and includes name, age, when committed, whether in gaol or bailed and for what committed. Researchers should refer to both volumes for prisoners that were committed for trial in the gaol and then subsequently tried in the gaol. Prisoners who were committed for trial in the gaol but then bailed appear in Volume 2 only.
The Special List for is arranged alphabetically by the prisoner's surname. The List also includes a page reference within the volumes.
