The publication of this Gazette would depend on the will of the Governor from 1808 until 1870. The following years were printed and are included here: 1808-1810, 1817-1828 and 1870-1919. This Gazette would also go through a series of titles. Names of colonial officers are present in the gazettes from 1808, alongside ship arrivals and departures. The gazettes covering 1817 include letters to the editor on slavery. Later volumes would include both shipping records and letters. After 1870 official notices replaced news articles and letters entirely. Historic events covered here include the Napoleonic wars, the Russo-Persian War in the 1820's and World War 1. These gazettes were published alongside the Annual Departmental Reports for Sierra Leone.
