Index book

  • GR-3761
  • Series
  • [1882-1885]

The series consists of one index book that may have been created by the Victoria Supreme Court as an index to probate cause books during the 1880s. The majority of the individuals listed died in British Columbia between the years of approximately 1882 to 1885. The vast majority of these deaths took place in the vicinity of Victoria and many of the individuals are listed in GR-1304. The index provides the name of the individual and a page number, which likely corresponds to a probate cause book that has yet to be located and transferred to the Archives. Individuals listed in the book are both male and female, and the listings include the names of Chinese, Japanese, and Indigenous individuals

Victoria Supreme Court bankruptcy indexes

  • GR-3743
  • Series
  • 1920-1990

The series consists of several different indexes relating to bankruptcy in Victoria and across the country. The records were maintained in the Victoria Supreme Court, and although they generally relate to records created in the 1960s to 1990s, at least one volume dates to the 1920s and 1930s. Early indexes are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the bankrupt individual. Later indexes, particularly those dealing with the late 1980s, are divided first by year and then arranged alphabetically. The 1989 to 1990 index provides the name of the individual, the name of the trustee, and a file number. All file numbers appear to refer to cause book entries, which give a more detailed account of proceedings in the case.

The series also consists of a subseries of records maintained by the Victoria Supreme Court that relate to bankruptcy cases heard outside of Victoria. Many of these volumes index entries in the Canada Gazette, and list individuals in Ontario and across the country. There are also several volumes that index bankruptcies across the province, and include entries from places such as Barriere, Penticton, and Rossland.

Victoria Supreme Court divorce cause books and case cards

  • GR-3738
  • Series
  • 1968-1989

The series consists of cause books and case record cards for divorces at the Victoria Supreme Court between 1968 and 1989. Cause books were generally used until the mid 1970s, and were placed by case cards. The records are organized by case file number, and provide a list of actions in a case. In some instances, the cause book or case card entry may be the only surviving record of a divorce action, particularly if the case was later abandoned. The cause book or case card can be used to identify a volume and folio number, which can then be used to obtain a copy of the divorce order

Victoria Supreme Court grants of letters probate

  • GR-3711
  • Series
  • 1946-1989

The series consists of both bound and loose grants of letters probate created by the Victoria Supreme Court between 1946 and 1989. Grants of letters probate were issued by the court system to grant authority to an estate’s executor/trix to administer the estate in question.

Grants of letters probate provide the name of the deceased, the date and place of death, the usual residence of the deceased, and the name of the executor.

The series is arranged by volume and folio, a system which is also broadly chronological. Grants are stamped with the volume and folio number, but also with the probate number of the deceased. An index to probate numbers can be found in GR-3016 (1950-2000) or GR-2083 (1941-1950).

For wills predating 1986, see GR-1052, GR-1574, and GR-2009, with an index in GR-1417.
