    Series & contents: Chronologically by date order.

    This series was created to register the conveyancing files of the Crown Solicitor's Office relating to land purchases by state schools.

    This register has an alphabetical index at the front to enable access by name or number.

    Each folio contains the following: date of instrument, 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 volume in this series is also the first volume in the subsequent series Crown Purchases Register : State Schools II [RECORDS NOT TRANSFERRED] (VPRS 8330) as from 1 January 1922 the files controlled by this series began to be allocated a sequential registration number.

    Whilst the Crown presumably purchased land on behalf of schools prior to 1893, it is not clear from the Crown Purchases Registers I (VPRS 8323) that references to educational purchases are related to school sales. Crown Purchases Register I, VPRS 8323 has been recorded as the previous series on the basis that some schools were the source of such entries in the registers in VPRS 8323.

    The end series date of this series has been artificially extended to allow a previous/subsequent relationship to be entered on the database.
