Canada 150 - Government Gazette of Vancouver Island

During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...

Government Gazette, Vancouver Island

On May 17, 1864 the first issue of the Government Gazette for Vancouver Island was published. It was two pages. 

In 1864-1865 there were extra editions to publish the Assessment Roll. Some land owners didn't even live on the Island...

From 1864-1866 there were published extra editions for Assessment of Trade Licenses...

The issue for February 4, 1865 gave list of road improvements PLUS names of settlers for the districts of Cowichan, Nanaimo and Comox
