Biographical history

Order-in-Council #0675-1939 dated May 17, 1939 indicates that the Alberni registry of the County Court was already in existence at that date; how much earlier that registry had been established has not yet been determined by research by BC Archives staff. By that Order-in-Council, a Supreme Court registry was established. The appointment of a new registrar was given to the person already serving as registrar for the County Court.

Alberni amalgamated with Port Alberni in October 1967; the re-incorporated entity is called City of Port Alberni. [Source: BC Geographical Names Office]

All County Courts were merged into the Supreme Court on July 1, 1990.
