Scope and content

The fonds consists of correspondence, account books and other financial and business records of the Trutch family created between 1849 and 1907. Also included in the papers of Joseph William Trutch are records related to his various government positions. The fonds has been arranged into five sous fonds containing the records of: Trutch's mother, Charlotte Hannah (Barnes) Trutch, Joseph William Trutch, his wife, Julia Elizabeth (Hyde) Trutch, his brother John, and John's wife, Zoe Trutch. The Joseph William Trutch sous fonds is the most extensive. Some of these records were previously catalogued at the item level in the Old Catalogue, primarily using classification A/E/OR3, and as MS-0412 O'Reilly family, MS-0248 O'Reilly family, and MS-1184 and MS-2081, Sir Joseph William Trutch. In 2001, these records, which were in different collections, were rearranged into fonds in preparation for a microfilming project. Records that belonged to the Trutch family fonds, were separated from those belonging to the O'Reilly family fonds, Edgar Dewdney fonds, Weir family fonds, and the William Curtis Ward fonds, and are now described separately. Provenance: Letters from MS-0248, purchased from J.K. Nesbitt, Victoria, 1974. Records from MS-0412 transferred from Point Ellice Historic House, Victoria, 1975. Other records, previously part of the Old Catalogue, were received at various times from various donors. The majority of the Old Catalogue records were received from John Windham O'Reilly in 1964. Finding aid: item and reel list.
