Scope and Content

Series contains a small quantity of pre-Confederation Attorney General's and Solicitor General's records that were transferred to the Archives of Ontario. The material in this series consists of miscellaneous documents relating to a variety of administrative and operational issues.

The files dealing with cases heard before the Court of King's Bench are arranged by the terms of the legal year during which judges sat in court. The legal year was divided into Michaelmas (October-December), Hilary (January-April), Easter (April-May), and Trinity (June-July). Between terms, the Courts were in vacation and no trials were heard.

Please note that the majority of pre-Confederation records still in existence reside with the National Archives of Canada.
