Colonial Magazine




The Colonial Magazine and versions thereof were published in London. Check each issue in the volumes.

Fisher's Colonial Magazine has Obituary notices in each issue, as well as other items, including where all the troops are stationed and news throughout the colonies. Check the list of contents at the beginning.




The Simmonds’s Colonial Magazine has lists of BMD at the end of each issue. In Vol 3, 1844, I found a Supplemental list of Immigrants on board the Appolline from London, via Plymouth to Hobart Town (AU) 1 Oct 1842. The list gives immigrants' names, their wages, their trade and the name of their employer. 





In the East Indian magazines look for Indian News. This may include BMD, military appointments and promotions, removals and forloughs, civil appointments, etc. 





Look for more issues on Google Books.
