Ontario Government Record Series RG 22-187
152 volumes of textual records
Series consists of copies of grants of probate and administration for the Surrogate Court for the Newcastle District (1803-1849) and the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham (1850-1949).
Until approximately 1842, they also contain copies of the petitions for probate or administration and any citations or affidavits related to a grant. During the same period, the court began to record grants of probate and grants of administration in separate volumes.
It should be noted that the Administration Book, 1843-1856, does record some grants of probate. After 1856 and until 1899 the court also kept separate registers for grants of administration with wills annexed. These were grants for estates where the testator had failed to name executors in the will.
