Scope and content
The series consists of orders issued by the Supreme Court in Victoria between 1880 and 1998. Orders dating from 1880 until December 1946 were microfilmed and the originals destroyed. Records after this period are maintained in their original bound form. Many, but not all of these volumes, include nominal indexes at the front of the ledger. Records in this series deal with a variety of matters, including adoptions and divorces. Orders are the formal expression of the will of the Court.
Records in this series were managed under secondary 51400-25 of the Court Services Operational Records Classification System (schedule 100152). They were selected for full retention because of their significant historical, evidential and informational value.

A record that looks as if it may be related to this series was found in a box of miscellaneous court records that was found in collection in November 2021. The majority of the records in this box were pulled from files in GR-1304 (Victoria probates) as they were discovered to be misfiled during microfilming in the 1980s. The order looks as if it is a rough transcript of orders in this series, although the original order could not be located. The file number is 1893 K No. 2 and it relates to the matter between James King and P.A. Paulson, W.B. Allen, L. H. Northey, and D. [Cassidy?]. It has been placed in a file in container 002340-2158.
