1. Two vessels were called Captivity, serving as prison hulks around the turn of the 19th century through to the mid 1830s. The first vessel was a former Royal Navy warship capable of holding up to 300 inmates and was broken up in or around 1816.
2. BS 7 Years - Sentenced to be transported 'Beyond the Seas' (Most generally but not exclusively to Australia) for 7 Years (the minimum period of transportation)
3. FP - Free Pardoned, i.e. pardoned without conditions
4. NSW Life - Sentenced to be transported to 'New South Wales' (Australia) for Life
5. Con(d) Pardon - Conditional Pardon
6. Adm Gambier - the Admiral Gambier, a transport vessel typical of the period. Built in Newcastle in 1808, she weighed 501 tons and made two journeys to Australia; one in 1808 and a second voyage in 1811. Setting sail from Portsmouth on 2 July 1808 she carried 200 convicts, via Rio & Cape Town, arriving 171 days later in Sydney on 20 December 1808
7. Ann - the Ann (also spelt Anne), another transport vessel. Two vessels bore this name, including one that set sail for Australia in August 1809 carrying 200 male prisoners, arriving in Sydney in February 1810 after a journey of 180 days.
8. Prison hulks were ships moored near naval bases used to house convicts - often those awaiting transportation. Each prisoner was allocated a number in the ships log when first received on board the prison hulk. These numbers were in ascending numerical order and are recorded in the first column.
9. 'Ditto' or 'Do' - as previously listed.
