If you read the public notices on those sites you will see that they are the only and earliest records we have. It should also be kept in mind that many records were destroyed as a result of the Rum Rebellion and the chaos of the following years. And a lot of our convict records kept England were either lost or destroyed. Not till Governor Macquarie did we have proper record keeping.
