Shareholders of Chartered Banks of the Dominion of Canada
Under each bank is listed the shareholders, with city of residence, number of shares, and amount paid. There may also be estate accounts, which are held until probate is finished and the money can be distributed to the heirs.
When it states a person is trustee for another person, it is probably until the person reaches a certain age. When it states a person is trustee usufructuary, that means the trustee can use the produce or income from property or asset for a specified time.
The oldest bank in Canada, with bank number 001, is the Bank of Montreal, which opened for business 3 November 1817. Until the Bank of Canada was established in 1934 banks issued their own bank notes. There is a list of early banks here, some of which closed in a few years or may have been taken over by another bank.
