Description The first Governor of Vancouver Island was appointed in 1849 and took up his duties in 1850. The colony of British Columbia was jurisdictionally separate but shared Sir James Douglas as Governor from its inception in 1858 until 1864. The island and mainland colonies were united in November 1866 and, as British Columbia, joined Confederation in 1871.
Series consists of records created or maintained in the Office of the Governor of Vancouver Island between 1849 and 1867, and in the Office of the Governor of British Columbia between 1858 and 1872. Included are despatches received and sent, a calendar and an analytical guide to the despatches.
Microfilm reel C-15632 contains some material from the New Brunswick Colonial Office at the start of the reel. This part of the collection includes despatches for the province between 1789 to 1790 and 1848 to 1867.
Le premier gouverneur de l'Île de Vancouver fut nommé en 1849 et entra en fonction en 1850. Sur le plan administratif, la colonie de la Colombie-Britannique était séparée de cette dernière, mais sir James Douglas assuma les fonctions de gouverneur pour les deux territoires depuis la création de la colonie en 1858 jusqu'en 1864. En novembre 1866, l'île de Vancouver fut réunie aux colonies sur le continent puis, en 1871, la Colombie-Britannique entra dans la Confédération.
Cette série est constituée de dossiers créés ou conservés par le bureau du gouverneur de l'Île de Vancouver entre 1849 et 1867, et par le bureau du gouverneur de la Colombie-Britannique entre 1858 et 1872. Elle contient des dépêches reçues et expédiées, un calendrier et un guide analytique des dépêches.
Au début de la bobine de microfilm C-15632, se trouve des documents du bureau colonial du Nouveau-Brunswick. Cette partie de la collection comprend des dépêches relatives à la province datant de 1789 à 1790 et de 1848 à 1867.
