  • Function / Content
    The registers contain lists of names of immigrants from Britain to Victoria, Australia between 1839 and 1871. These immigrants were 'assisted', meaning in most cases that their passage was subsidised by the Victorian Government.

    The register for each ship may include the name of the ship, the ship's captain's name, place and date of departure, place and date of arrival. For each passenger the register may include: name, occupation, native country and county, religion, ability to read and / or write, sex, age, marital status and "disposal" (employer on arrival).

  • Recordkeeping System
    The records are arranged chronologically by date of arrival in Victoria.
