This system was already used in late medieval manuscripts.

William Sorell : Journal

  • AU TAS UTAS SPARC S17
  • Collection
  • 1823-1825

Collection consists of type written transcript of original diary of William Sorell Jnr. for the years 1823-1825.
In his journal Sorell made brief daily entries of his voyage out, his reception at Government House, the arrival of Lt. Governor Arthur, his new post as Registrar of the Supreme Court. The entries are brief but of particular interest are his references to the arrival of ships and his meeting officers and other people of note landing at Hobart. He makes occasional references to his work and cases in court and to Judge Pedder and his wife. Apart from his work Sorell's chief activities, as noted, were riding, walking, reading and dining with 'friends and officers of the Barracks and Convict Department. He attended church regularly on Sunday and mentions the arrival of an organ subscribed for by the in habitants (13, 14 April 1825). He took occasional shooting trips, mainly to the Coal River (Richmond). Most of the entries are, however, brief and lacking in detail or descriptive accounts as may be illustrated by his reference to a proposal to transfer the capital to Brighton: 'Meeting at Government House. Removal to Brighton in a large Meeting. I attended. I think the Lt. Governor has made up his mind upon the removal.' (19 May 1825)

Freedom of City of London

Record of admission dated 10 February 1825, and affirmation, of Francis Cotton as a Freeman of the City of London (citizen) in the Drapers' Company, having been apprentice of John Farrar citizen and draper.
Note: the drapers' Company is one of the oldest of the City Guilds or Livery Companies. The Drapers were originally makers of woollen cloth, but since the seventeenth century have had little connection with the cloth industry and John Farrar was not actually a draper by trade. F.C. said he was apprenticed as a carpenter etc. (see 132). Freemen were members of their company (or guild) and citizens of
London, but only the "livery men" of the Company (those entitled to wear the Company's livery) had the right to nominate an alderman as a candidate for the office of Lord Mayor each year.
