Biographical history

The Supreme Court of Civil Justice of the Colony of Vancouver Island was established by an Imperial Order in Council from the British Privy Council, dated 4 April 1856. The court remained separate from the Supreme Court of Civil Justice of British Columbia, even when the two colonies merged in 1866.

The court was renamed the Supreme Court of Vancouver Island by the 1 March 1869 Ordinance to regulate the Supreme Courts of Justice of British Columbia. This ordinance also provided for the future merger of the two courts into the Supreme Court of British Columbia, which was completed 29 March 1870 under the Courts Merger Ordinance, 1870.
