On this muster appear Anthony Hordern and his family. Although difficult to read, the colume headings appear to be: Name; Age; Class; Vessel; Yr of Arrival; Sentence; Employment. In the case of Anthony, it would appear that he arrived in 1825 aboard the 'Phoenix', that his sentence was 7 years and his employment was 'Coach Maker'. This agrees with the biographical account in the Australian Dictionary of Biographies (see 'Owner/Source', below)
Also on this document are sons, Anthony and John, daughter Elizabeth and wife Ann (nee Woodhead).

The Local Government Board was established by the Local Government Board Act 1871 with primary responsibility for supervision of local government services. During and following the First World War the board was required to fulfil special functions, and they were discharged both through its existing departments and by newly-formed ones. One of the latter was that it had general responsibility for the system of national registration for wartime purposes introduced by the National Registration Act 1915. A certificate of registration was issued to everyone on the Register setting out their personal details. Although not called an identity card, that in effect is what it was. An amendment to the act in 1918 required the production of a certificate on demand to a police officer or other authorised person. The registration requirement was withdrawn at the end of the First World War.
