Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Applications for matters to be heard under the Companies Statute, Real Property Statute, Statute of Trustees and a number of other statutes were registered in this register.

    Entries were made in the register in sequential number order, i.e., 1, 2, 3, etc., under the name of the person or company that was the matter of the case. The name of the person who submitted the application was also recorded. The sequential number became the application or case number and was written on documents submitted to the court in relation to each case.

    There is an index at the front of the register. It is arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the party that the matter is about. The index gives the application registration number. With this number you may turn to the relevant entry in the register.

    The case number may be used to retrieve files in VPRS 12024 Companies and Miscellaneous Applications Files.

  • Function / Content
    Applications for matters to be heard under the Companies Statute and other miscellaneous statutes were registered in single number order as they were received by the Court. The case files were then filed in registration number order.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Applications for hearings under the Companies Statute and a number of other statutes in the Supreme Court were registered and controlled within a single number system. The recordkeeping comprised three series:

    VPRS 5373 Register of Applications under Companies Statute (Trading), Real Property Statute, Statute of Trustees, etc.
    VPRS 12024 Companies and Miscellaneous Applications Files
    VPRS 5498 Index to Companies and Miscellaneous Applications Files.

    Applications were registered in this series (VPRS 5373) under the names of the matters in dispute (rather than the names of the applicants). The next available number in the register was allocated to each application as it was received by the Supreme Court.
