Compilation and analysis of sentencing reports

Extensive reports, from all over England and Wales -- from Assize courts, Quarter or General Sessions, and from Clerks of the Peace for Towns Boroughs and Cities -- of the numbers of persons committed for trial, convicted and sentenced. This remarkably informative tabulated data is a rich source of material for the history of transportation and of the treatment of crime during the Macquarie period. Loosely inserted is a separate single leaf printing "A Statement of the Nature of the Crimes of which the persons were convicted, who had sentence of Death passed upon them, and of the number who were executed", also printed for the British Parliament (22 March 1819).
