Biographical history

In 1908 the British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at Cranbrook, effective June 22, 1908. It was approved and ordered by Order-in-Council # 0388-1908 dated June 10, 1908. (Source: Orders-in-Council and British Columbia Gazette 1908, p. 2188)

By the same order, the Registry of the Supreme Court at Fort Steele was closed.
