    Series: 2-10

    Contents: 1 - 27,566.

    This series was created to register the miscellaneous conveyancing files of the Crown Solicitor. (The Crown Solicitor also maintained separate crown purchase registers for the conveyancing files of the Country Roads Board (VPRS 8325), Electricity Commission (VPRS 8326), Water Supply (VPRS 8327, 8328) and State Schools (VPRS 8329, 8330).

    This series of registers allocated sequential numbers to conveyancing files. All registers have an alphabetical index at the front of each volume to allow access by name of the parties involved or by date.

    Each folio contains the following information: date of instrument (later sequential number), vendor(s), person to whom conveyed, nature of instrument: conveyance, surrender, feoffment or certificate of title, price, situation of land in County, Parish and Allotment and size in acres, roods and perches.

    The second Crown Purchase Register in this series also provides an index to land set aside for roads and miscellaneous deeds.

    Unit 1 is both the first register of this series and the last register in the previous series (VPRS 8320) because from 13 January 1922 the files begin to be numbered sequentially from 1 and the date of instrument column records the sequential numbers from this point.

    After the Crown Solicitor ceased using separate registers for the Country Roads Board (1968), the Electricity Commission (1928), Water Supply & State Schools (1982), the registers were in this series used to record purchases for these authorities. Therefore this series is recorded as the subsequent series to the previous "agency specific" registers.
