Scope and Content

Sub-series consists of a single volume entitled "Warrants for lands without purchase, Regulations 21 November 1825". In point of fact, this one volume contains two separate registers.

The first part of the volume consists of a register of fiats for leases, covering the period 1830 (lease # 926) to April 1860 (lease # 1688). Entries record: the Surveyor General's fiat number; the Executive Council Office's number; the Attorney General's number; the name, occupation and place of residence of the leasee; location of the land being leased (township, concession and lot); the type of reserve being leased (e.g., water lot, clergy reserve); the date of the order-in- council authorising the lease; the date rent payments are to commence; the date of the Attorney General's fiat; a description number (these description numbers have the letter "L" as a suffix); and remarks. An alphabetical index to leasees is located at the back of this volume.

The second part of the volume is entitled: "Warrants for lands without purchase under regulations of 21 November 1825, commencing 1 January 1826". Entries in the volume record: the warrant number; the name, place of residence, place of birth, and occupation of the grantee; the date of the order-in-council authorising the grant; the acreage granted and the district in which it was to be located; the location of the grant (lot, concession and township); the date the ticket of location was issued, and to whom; the Attorney General's fiat number and date; and a description number. Entries cover warrant # 1 (1826) to # 182 (1828). Some entries contain later annotations relating to the grants, to 1832.
