GRANTS INDEX

SPECIAL GRANTS

SPECIAL GRANTS are titles issued by the Crown for land or other Crown Property in which occur conditions or provisions of a nature which constitute a departure from the ordinary land grant, the conditions of which follow a prescribed form. The volumes in which the regular land grants are registered are made up of the prescribed forms pinted and bound in a book. It is therefore necessary to register grants different from the prescribed form in Special Volumes. There are three such volumes at the Department, -- the titles registered in these volumes are listed in the following pages under place names which are arranged in the same geographical sequence as the sections of the Geographical Index of Grants.
  NOTE:
Entries in the following format refer to entries entered in pen at a later date. They were not typed entries on the original pages.
