Convict Lives – at the George Town Female Factory


Out of stock



The book tells the stories of 31 convict women who spent time at the George Town Factory.
They ranged from women who spent brief periods there to other more rebellious convicts who paid ten, twelve of more visits, and were punished by solitary confinement, hard labour, having their hair cut off or having to wear a heavy iron collar.
The 22 authors tell vivid stories of the lives of these women, separated from family and friends, trying to establish themselves in the harsh environment of convict Van Diemen’s Land.
