Name of creator
The British Columbia government established a County Court registry at Ashcroft, in the County of Yale, effective February 1, 1922. It was established by Order-in-Council 0151-1922, dated January 31, 1922.
In 1924, a change in the boundary line between the Counties of Yale and Cariboo made by the Counties Definition Act Amendment Act, 1924, situated the town of Ashcroft and vicinity within the County of Cariboo rather than the County of Yale. In 1925, by OIC 0015-1925, in effect, the Ashcroft County Court registry was moved from the County Court of Yale to the County Court of Cariboo.
All County Courts were merged into the Supreme Court on July 1, 1990
Scope and content
Series consists of several volumes of indexes and plaint and procedure books dating from approximately 1890 to 1975. Included in the series is an index for records in GR-1646. The index, which runs from 1890-1921, is divided into sections for first, second, third, and fourth books. It appears that the volume in GR-1646 is indexed as the fourth book. The whereabouts of the remaining "books" are unknown.
Volumes dating from 1936 onward include both the index and the record within the same ledger book. The 1921-1936 index volume includes one page at the back with a list of mechanics’ liens from 25 October 1930.
