The series consists of indexes and bills of sale from the Quesnel County Court. The records were created between 1915 and 1925 and include bills of sale, agreements, liens relating to livestock, conditional sales, and Land Settlement Board soldier settlements.
The series consists of three volumes of indexes. The “FROM” volume is arranged alphabetically by seller’s name and the “TO” volume is arranged alphabetically by purchaser’s namer. The third volume is a complete register with both seller and purchaser’s names. This volume includes names, occupations, addresses, and the particulars of purchase. The “TO” and “FROM” volumes include file and page numbers that correspond to the bill of sale records in subsequent folders. The bills of sale are arranged by what the indexes call the “file” number.
The sales were made under subsection 4 of section 2 of the “Sale of Goods Act Amendment” (SBC 1916, c. 56) which states “The office for filing shall be the office of the Registrar of the County Court holden in or nearest to the place where delivery of the chattels is made or required to be made.”
