Biographical history

The British Columbia government established a Supreme Court registry at Fort Steele effective June 25, 1900. A District Registrar for the Fort Steele Registry was appointed, taking effect at the same time. Notice was given by the Provincial Secretary’s Office on 28 May 1900. [Source: BC Gazette May 31, 1900, p.936].

The government, by Order-in-Council 0388-1908, effective 1908 June 22, closed the Fort Steele Registry and established the Cranbrook Registry (in the County of Kootenay). By the same order, a District Registrar and Deputy District Registrar were appointed for the new registry. The Order-in-Council was dated 1908 June 10, notice from Provincial Secretary, 12 June 1908.
