Lytton court documents

  • GR-2414
  • Series
  • 1858-1887, 1920

The series consists of records relating to the Supreme and County Courts of Lytton, as well as some records relating to the local government commissioner. The records date from approximately 1858 to 1887, with a single note from 1920 indicating that one record was used as an exhibit in a court case. Records in this series may have been initially found at the County Court offices in Lytton, although their provenance is unclear and the records relate to all levels of court matters. The series consists of correspondence, summonses, financial documents, case records, search warrants, affidavits, bail bonds, writs, oaths for coroner’s inquests, and depositions of witnesses. The series includes letters written by, and about, Mr. Peter O’Reilly, as well as a telegraph sent by Joseph Trutch. Correspondence covers a wide variety of topics, including settler-First Nations relations, local crime, the appointment of special constables, and the issuance of trading licenses. The records are fairly geographically limited in scope, and center on Lytton and Spence’s Bridge.

The records were found in the Provincial Museum storage in the 1980s, and were originally part of accessions G80-076, which includes land records relating to the Yale area, and G86-081, which includes Supreme and County court records relating to Richfield, Vancouver, and Victoria. However, the records were removed from this accession in 2004 and at that time, archivists classified the records as their own series. It was also possibly at this time that the records were arranged into folders based on the year of creation. All 1858 records have been grouped together, all 1860 records together etc, despite the fact that the records in the folders appear to have little relation to each other. Although every effort has been made to provide descriptive and accurate file titles, due to the disparate nature of the records, researchers are strongly encouraged to examine the files themselves.

Yale, Lytton, and Spences Bridge land and mining records, and government agent correspondence

  • GR-3751
  • Series
  • 1864-1890

The series consists of assorted pieces of correspondence, notes and petitions created between 1864 and 1890 in the Yale, Lytton, and Spences Bridge areas of British Columbia. The records appear to have been accrued by different government agents and Assistant Commissioners of Lands and Works, including W.C. Berkeley, W. Teague, F.S. Hussey, and A. T. Bushby. The records deal with a variety of issues, but are mainly centered around land and mining rights, including applications for the pre-emption of land. The series also includes some letters that appear to be personal in nature, as well as some records tangentially relating to police or court business, including letters addressed to the Magistrate of Yale Lytton District. The majority of the records in this series date from the early 1870s and are addressed to the government agent, a position which evolved due to the expanding responsibilities of the early gold commissioners.

In 2004, many of the records relating to court business were removed from accession G80-076 and placed in GR-2414. The direct relationship between these two sets of records is unclear, and records in GR-2414 were placed in folders based on the year of the record, with the result that the context of the records has been lost.
