The inquest records of Tasmania dating from 1828 are stark revelations of
human tragedy. From them it is possible to gain knowledge of the legal processes
operating, vivid details of the life and times, and insight into the way in which
sudden and accidental deaths were viewed by coroners and others seeking to make
life in Tasmania safer for its citizens. This study samples these records, setting
them in historical context and highlighting what I consider is the interesting data
