Biographical history

Archivist’s Note: The date of the establishment of the Fort George registry of the County Court has not yet been confirmed by BC Archives staff (as of March 2016).

The City of Prince George was incorporated on March 6, 1915.

Effective December 15, 1923, the new Prince George County Court Registry (County Court of Cariboo) was established and the County Court registries at Fort George and South Fort George were closed.

By OIC 0027-1924, the appointment of the Registrar of the County Court of Cariboo, Fort George Registry (George Milburn) was rescinded; Milburn was at the same time appointed Registrar for the new Prince George Registry. (Source: OIC 0027-1924; and notice given January 8, 1924 by the Attorney-Generals’ Department, in BC Gazette, January 10, 1924, p. 51).
