Lovell's 1871 Directory - General Information




All applications to be addressed to the office of the Colonial Secretary,
St. John's, where all documents are fyled and models deposited.

The Act of the Colonial Legislature, 19 Vic., cap. 19, provides that
Patents of Invention may be granted for the Island of Newfoundland and
its dependencies for a term of fourteen years, and of seven additional,
at the option of the Governor, to any one who shall apply for the same,
alleging that he has discovered some new and useful art, machine,
manufacture or composition of matter not heretofore known or used.

Every application for a patent must be accompanied by a declaration
made before one of the judges of the Supreme Court, that the applicant
believes himself to be the true Inventor of the discovery for which
he solicits a patent, and that it has not been heretofore used in
Newfoundland or elsewhere.

In the granting of Patents no distinction is made as regards the nationality
of the inventor, but in the case of foreigners, the necessary declaration must
be made before a British Consul or Vice-Consul, and certified by his seal of office.

Together with petition for Patent, every applicant shall deliver an exact
and precise description of his invention or improvement, specifying the method
of using, a process of compounding in such manner as to distinguish the same from
all other things before known, and to enable any person skilled in the art or
science of which it is a branch, or with which it is most nearly connected, to
compound the same, and in case of any machine shall deliver his model thereof into
\the office of the Colonial Secretary, and shall explain the principle and several
modes in which he has contemplated the application of the principle or character which
distinguishes it from other inventions; the whole to be accompanied by drawings, or
with specimens of the ingredients, and of the composition of matter, sufficient for
the purposes of experiment.

Any Patent granted for an invention previously patented outside the colony ceases
on the expiry of the original patent.

Any assignee of a partly or parties obtaining a Patent in other countries may obtain
Letters Patent in Newfoundland provided the discovery shall not have come into common
use prior to the application for Patent.

The cost of obtaining a Patent in Newfoundland including the necessary advertising
of intention to ask for Patent in the Royal Gazette and one other paper would be $45.

The following form answers to the requirements of the Statute:


To His Excellency (A.B.), governor and commander-in-chief of the Island of Newfoundland, &c., &c.

The Petitioner (name of Inventor) of (residence) in (county and country) trade or profession).

That your Petitioner believes the said Invention is of great public utility, and that the same hath not, to the best of his knowledge or belief, been known or used in the Island of Newfoundland, or in any other county;

That your Petitioner is desirous of obtaining an exclusive property in the said Invention, in the Island of Newfoundland;

Your Petitioner therefore prays that your Excellency will be pleased to issue Letters Patent granting to your Petitioner the full and exclusive right and
liberty of using the said Invention for the term of fourteen years, and for the
further term of seven years, if your Excellency shall deem it expedient.

    For the protection of property wrecked on the coast of Newfoundland an act was passed 23 Vict. Cap. 5. By this act the Governor is authorized to appoint in every district of the Island one or more commissioners of wrecked property, whose duty shall be to take charge of any wrecked property above the value of twenty-five pounds, which may be within the limits of his district, if the same should not be in the custody of the owner, or agent or being in such custody, if requested to take charge thereof.

    The Commissioner has power to compel the discovery of any wrecked goods in the possession of parties other than the owner thereof or his agent, and should there be disagreement relative to the amount of salvage the claims shall be submitted to the decision of two arbitrators, in addition to the commissioner, who shall be appointed one by the owner as his agent and the other by the claimant, all property to remain in the hands of the commissioner until all claims for salvage are disposed of. Provided that in case the property saved shall amount to $4,000 in value an appeal may be made within one month from the decision of the arbitrators to any Superior Count of Record or judge of such court; which appeal shall be heard and determined in a summary way by such court or judge either upon evidence as taken before the arbitrators and commissioner, or otherwise as the court or judge may direct, and the commissioner is authorized to pay all awards either by money or the property saved.

    Any person secreting property other than the owner or agent and refusing to make it known or give it up to the commissioner, shall upon discovery forfeit double the value thereof, and pay for each offence a penalty of one hundred pounds to Her Majesty and shall forfeit all claims for salvage.

    The commissioner may employ parties to secure and preserve property, and any persons disobeying the lawful orders of the commissioner in relation thereto shall for every such offence forfeit and pay the sum of ten pounds.

    The commissioner shall make an inventory of all property which shall come into his possession, and shall verify the same by affidavit, and deliver a copy thereof, together with the said property, to the person entitled thereto after having satisfied salvage or other services, on being first paid his commission and all reasonable and necessary charges that he may have been put to for the care and custody of such property.

    Any person intermeddling with property after arrival of commissioner other than the owner or his agent shall forfeit a sum of fifty pounds.

    If no owner or persons interested in such property be present where the same may be, the commissioner, as soon as practical, shall publish in a newspaper of the colony the particulars of the shipwreck and other information relating to the property, on neglect of which he shall forfeit one hundred pounds. Within thirty days after salvage claims have been satisfied commissioner may sell property to pay duties, and charges thereon, first giving fourteen days notice of such sale in one of the newspapers of the colony and by hand-bills posted up in three of the principal settlements of the district in the vicinity of the place appointed for such sale.

    If property be under the value of twenty-five pounds, or of such a nature that it cannot advantageously be kept, the commissioner may sell the same before the expiration of thirty days, and the money so raised shall be held for the same purpose and subject to the same claims as if it had remained unsold.

    Should no person interested in such property establish his claims thereto within three months after the publication of particulars relating thereto, the commissioner shall at the expiration of such time (or as soon thereafter as all salvage and other claims have been liquidated) deposit with receiver general of the colony a sworn copy of the inventory of such property, or if the same be sold, an account of the sales, and monies paid for charges, duties, expenses and shall thereon pay over the balance of the pounds, or the property remaining on hand to the receiver general, deducting therefrom a sum not exceeding five per cent, exclusive of disbursements and reasonable charges, to satisfy the said commissioner for all claims he may have for his services or otherwise. Any disagreement between the commissioner and the receiver general to be decided by arbitration. Should the commissioner refuse to make return to the receiver general within thirty days after the expiration of three months (all claims to salvage being liquidated) Her Majesty's attorney general shall, at the instance of the receiver general, prosecute such commissioner, and recover from him the balance of such pounds, or the value thereof.

    If the property deposited with the receiver general be not claimed within twelve months, it shall be paid over to the treasury, therein to remain until the same shall be claimed by the owner, who, on proof before a judge of the Supreme Court, shall upon order of such judge receive the same.

    Should any one refuse, on demand, to deliver to the commissioner property liable to his charge, it shall be lawful for a justice of peace, upon affidavit made before him, to command a constable of the district to seize and safely keep the same until such time as the justice shall decide upon the merits of the case, and the decision may be appealed against to any Superior Court of Record in the colony or to a judge thereof.

    Any proceedings that may be appealed against to any Superior Court of Record or a judge of such court, if in accordance with justice, shall be confirmed notwithstanding any want of legal form therein, or may be corrected, or amended, and wholly revised only for wilful error, excessive or insufficient award.

    Any person being a defaulter in the payment of any fine, &c., imposed on him, with no property on which the same may be levied, shall be committed to gaol for a period not exceeding six months, with or without hard labor.

    In case of the absence of the owner or his agent, if he be a foreigner, the consul, vice consul or consular agent of his country shall be deemed the agent of such owner.
