IMMIGRATION RECORDS 1839-1923

 

ASSISTED IMMIGRATION

Assisted immigration records include passengers arriving from the United Kingdom who had their voyage subsidised by the Victorian Government. From 1871 until 1883 the assisted immigration records are included with the unassisted immigration records.

Between 1844 and 1849, 1727 ex prisoners who had served their sentences were sent to Victoria. They were known as “Exiles”. They were also referred to as "Pentonvillians" because most of them came from Pentonville Probationary Prison in England. Their immigration records can be found under assisted immigration records. The dates of arrival, names of ships and numbers of ex-prisoners on board are listed below:

11 November 1844 - Royal George (21 landed at Melbourne)
20 March 1845 - Sir George Seymour (175 landed at Geelong)
27 January 1846 - Stratheden (51 Landed at Melbourne)
9 November 1846 - Maitland (291 Landed at Melbourne)
4 May 1847 - Thomas Arbuthnot (288 Landed at Melbourne)
24 Sept 1847 - Joseph Somes (248 Landed at Geelong)
25 January 1848 - Marion (292 Landed at Melbourne)
22 June 1848 - Anna Maria (163 Landed at Geelong)
4 February 1849 - Eden (133 Landed at Portland & 65 at Geelong)

Assisted immigrants may have also been helped to emigrate by their local parish (see Poor Law Records in Great Britain and Ireland) or they may have been helped by various schemes in Britain: for example an emigration scheme assisting Scottish people was the Highland and Island Emigration Society. Government assistance was also given to the wives and families of convicts (these may be included with convict records see Convicts), and reuniting families where emigrants had left children behind in Great Britain and Ireland.
