New South Wales

Flow Source: Deborah Oxley, Convict Maids: The Forced Migration of Women to Australia (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996), Table A1. The Appendices to Convict Maids contain a wealth of statistical material, for convict women and men, including regional origins, conjugal status, age distribution, offence for which transported, mortality, previous occupation, and literacy. Another excellent source of data on NSW is the collection of essays edited by Stephen Nicholas: Convict Workers: Reinterpreting Australia’s past (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1998).
