Bills of sale and orders-in-council

  • GR-1825
  • Series
  • 1873-1912, 1914-1922

Register of bills of sale, 1873-1912 (case nos. 1-856). This register is primarily for Clinton, but also includes bills of sale from Williams Lake, Canoe Creek, and Ashcroft. Copies of orders-in-council relating to the administration of bills of sale are also included. An alphabetical index to the names of grantors listed in this volume is tucked into the front cover. An alphabetical index to the names of grantees was later discovered in a different accession and is available in 002340-1022.

The series also consists of several type-written pages of bills of sale and chattel mortgages dating from 1914 to 1922. The 1914-1922 records were originally transferred with registers of bills of sale from Kamloops, but were not found to match the Kamloops records. The case numbers run from 1047 to 1598 and cover bills of sale from Ashcroft, Upper Hat Creek, Clinton, Lillooet and Lytton. A comparison between many of the grantor and grantee names in the 1912 and 1914 records suggests that both sets of records belong to the same series.
