Custodial history

Records in container 913432-0034 were transferred to the Archives by the Ministry of the Attorney General. At that time, they were described as having come from various court registries, and there was no further indication of their custodial history. Despite the fact that some records bear the Clinton registry stamp, it appears that the bulk of the case files were created in Kamloops. It is unclear if the ephemera originally accompanied the records, or if it was added by Attorney General staff at a later date.

Scope and content

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.
