Abstract

William Sorell (1800-1860) was the eldest son of William Sorell (1775-1848), who served as Lt. Governor of Van Diemen's Land from 1816 until May 1824. In his journal Sorell made brief daily entries of his voyage out, his reception at Government House, the arrival of Lt. Governor Arthur, and 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.
