Convict Lives George Town

 

This book tells the stories of 31 convicts who spent time at the George Town Female Factory.  The George Town Female Factory was established in 1822 to house female convicts in the north of Van Diemans Land.  Women went there to be assigned as domestic servants, or when they were pregnant or sentenced to punishment.  It closed in 1834 when a second factory was opened in the new northern capital, Launceston.
