Feature Expedition

Index to Deeds of Land Grants

Field notesLibraries Tasmania

The Index to Deeds of Land Grants was produced by the Registry of Deeds (later the Land Titles Office). The deeds authorise the grants of Crown land to citizens and date from 1832-1935.

The transcription of this data will allow people to easily identify the early Tasmanian settlers who were granted land by the Crown, and the area, location and year of the grant. It also gives us the book and page number for the original deed records, which will allow us to create a link to the full deeds in our Names Index.
