CONDITIONAL PARDONS, CONDITIONAL RELEASE
Explanations of the various forms of release and pardons are noted below. Here, I have posted various forms of documents with the help of TROVE, also a number of lists of those receiving the same.
In previous posts, Certificates of Freedom and Tickets of Leave were among items covered. TROVE has many items covering all subjects related to convicts. I suggest you do a broad search first, such as 'conditional pardons', then narrow it as desired. While many of the lists released in Government Gazettes were also published in the press of the time, not all were. It pays to look for Government Gazettes as a separate search.
Also, don't restrict your search just to one state, as many stories were published over several states, often with more detail in one item than in others.

These were tough times, times that most of us would be glad we haven't known...

Last Friday fo'night Thomas McLaugh-
lane ( distinguished by the appellation of
the Elder McLaughlane), was removed from
Parramatta to Hawkesbury, there to suffer
the Sentence of the Law; and about five in
the evening was lodged in a place of security
near the New Store, and there attended by
the Rev. Mr. Dixon, Minister of the Church
of Rome. At nine on Saturday morning the
then unhappy criminal was taken from his
last confinement to the place of Execution at
the Green Hills, near the back of the Old
Store. In his latter moments he conducted
himself with decency and propriety, as he
had done during the whole term of his im-
prisonment; to the Minister he attended
with fervor, and observed a profound silence.
At ten he was given up to the Executioner,
and in a few moments after atoned for his
offences. This is the Third who has suffered
of the eight cast for death, the rest being
pardoned on condition of remaining Trans-
ports for Life.-- May that Mercy be pro-
ductive of the desired good effect.
