View Full Version : Bermudan Prison c1850s
I have a document relating to an individual who was released from Borz(?) Island Prison 540.
I think it is in Bermuda.
Can anyone shed any light on this place?

It's more usually spelled Boaz Island.:) If you try googling that you'll find lots of info. Sorry, I have to head for bed now, otherwise would say more.:sleeping:

Try The National Archives
Though it is still a bit far from your location it is nearer than Bermuda. :smile5:

Jill Chambers in her article on 'Prison hulks in Bermuda' mentions the opening of Boaz Island prison and the transfer of convicts there from the hulks:
