    Custodial history

    These records were accumulated in the Prothonotaries' Offices in the various counties for a number of years and were transferred to the Nova Scotia Archives from the early 1970s to the early 1980s.

    Scope and content

    This collection is an artificial arrangement, organized by county or jurisdiction rather than by provenance, with Halifax County first and the other counties following in alphabetical order. Within each county the records are generally arranged chronologically, retaining the original order in which they were filed together in the court houses. The inquest records in this collection were separated from other court record series by Archive staff, but many inquest papers remain intermingled with other court records. County Court records in particular should be consulted if a particular inquest in not located in this collection.

    There are several series: general coroners’ returns for various counties, 1755-1928 that contain statistical returns and other administrative information; case files for coroners’ inquests and magisterial inquiries for the following counties: Halifax (1828 to 1928); Cape Breton (1906 to 1907), Colchester (1885 to 1973), Cumberland (1931 to 1959), Inverness (1936 to 1971), Lunenburg (1824 to 1907), Queens (1818 to 1940), and Shelburne (1786 to 1904); and medical reports on causes of death for Halifax City and the Town of Dartmouth (1895 to 1967).
