Kamloops Supreme Court civil case files

  • GR-2525
  • Series
  • 1868-1949

The series consists of Kamloops Supreme Court civil case files from 1868 to 1949 as well as several County Court files that appear to have become interfiled at some point of the records's history. Files before 1914 have a Clinton or Yale Registry stamp even though the hearing seems to have been in Kamloops. Records in accession G88-103 were transferred separately, and include a notice of sheriff's sale from Prince Rupert, an assortment of loose law stamps, correspondence regarding cases, and oaths of allegiance for Norman Bole of New Westminster and William Ward Spinks of Kamloops. It is unclear how some of the ephemera came to be included with these records.

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.
