Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Entries were made in the index in alphabetical order in the name of the company or person that was the subject of the matter in dispute (In the matter of) and the Application number given. The name may be a company name or the name of a deceased person for example. The index facilitates access to VPRS 12024 Companies and Miscellaneous Applications Files which were filed in application or case number order.

  • Function / Content
    The index was used to facilitate retrieval of the files in VPRS 12024 in the Supreme Court. Entries in the index were made in alphabetical order as described above. The names of the applicants were not listed in the index, however they were in the register (VPRS 5373).

    Applications were made to the Supreme Court under a number of statutes including the Companies Act, the Wills and Probates Act, the Inebriates Act the Marriage Act, the Custody Act, the Local Government Act and the Trade Practices Act amongst others.

    A list of statutes under which applications to the Supreme Court were made is pasted inside the front cover of the volume.

    In 1936, a separate index was created for applications under the Companies Act, VPRS 5497. This series, VPRS 5498 continued to be used as the index for Miscellaneous applications.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The index is arranged in alphabetical order by name of the matter in dispute and gives the relevant application or case number.

    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.
