Irish Wattle focuses on Irish convicts transported to Sydney, Australia. Often we uncover more information on each convict than we have room for in our published books. This includes details on their previously unknown convictions and trials in Ireland dating back to 1780, tales of the families they were forced to leave behind, and their familial links and friendships in Sydney.

We welcome contact with historians researching Australian convict history, and genealogists tracing convict ancestors. We often put genealogists in touch with others researching the same family, so do send us your ancestor’s name and we’ll check for other contacts on our database.
