Scope and content

The series consists of records created by the Vancouver Island courts of civil justice between approximately 1866 and 1867. The index records in this series appear to be drafts of an index to civil suits, and cases mentioned in this rough index appear in volume 3 of GR-2716 (plaint and procedure books from the Vancouver Island Inferior Court of Civil Justice). The index is not complete.

Several of the index pages were written on the back of records belonging to the probate file of Emilia Fedaro (also spelled Fidaro), who died in 1867 or 1868. The probate pages include the granting of letters of administration to Robert Newell, as well as what appears to be a draft of a covering page to the probate file.
