The. Rev. James Norman, the author of this
vocabulary and the accompanying notes, was for some
years attached to a Mission in Sierra Leone. He arrived
in Tasmania in 1827, and after temporary employment
in Launceston and at New Town, he was appointed in
1832 to the Chaplaincy of Sorell, which at that time
included Richmond and Tasman's Peninsula, and extended
to Swansea, on the East Coast. His removal to
Hobart upon his retirement from Sorell in 1867 was soon
followed by his death in 1868. On the day of his funeral
all public ofifices in Hobart were closed by order of the
Governor, as a testimony of respect for his long and
valuable services to the colony.
The article contains a list of words accompanied by observations from the author.
