PB = Prisoner Barracks (for being out after hours at JACOMB's)
BM = Broad Marsh (probably on a road gang)
A. HUDSON, Broad Marsh (Alexander HUDSON)
J. FROUD, Native Corner, Richmond (John FROUD)
G. NICHOLS, Eastern Marshes (George NICHOLS)
Oats = Oatlands, where he died

Hi Debra,

Many thanks, had struggled with this part of the full page.  Had some of it but you have put the icing on the cake for me.  Well done.
