Description found in Archives

Date(s)

1766-1841

Place of creation

Ontario

18.6 m of textual records.

Scope and content

The series consists of letters, petitions, reports, returns and schedules, certificates, accounts, warrants, legal opinions, instructions and regulations, proclamations and other documents received by the Civil Secretary of Upper Canada, 1791-1841, together with copies of some documents of 1766-1809, made for reference purposes. Together, this material forms a very miscellaneous series known as the Upper Canada Sundries. This arises from the extensive range of duties performed by the Civil Secretary, and from the custom of plurality, whereby an individual might hold several offices but custom and practice did not give rise to separate record-keeping systems for each office. The post-1841 correspondence received in RG 7, G 20 reflects the narrowing of responsibilities in the Civil Secretary's office in that period. Enclosures are generally found with their covering letters, but the Sundries does not contain all correspondence received. Notable exceptions from the Sundries are the undated petitions and the Addresses from the Legislature now forming RG 5, B 3; some oversize petitions in RG 1, E 16; correspondence relating chiefly to Indian Affairs in RG 7, G 14 (volumes 2-7); and selected documents on special subjects forming RG 5, series B 11 and B 21.
