            The St. John County Registry Records include the three original parishes of Portland, Saint Martins and Lancaster, as well as the City of Saint John. There were no unassigned lands in St. John or in Kings County, the only counties in which this was the case.
            The St. John Registry Books were arranged with each volume representing a specific period of time.  The registrar assigned each volume a letter, a number, and a series designation until the alphabet was complete in 1823.  At that time, a second number and series designation was begun.  The records consist of the usual deeds, mortgages, and other land transfer documents.  The registry books do not contain any type of internal index to guide the researcher.            
Originals: A copy of the original records are held at the Registrar's Office, 15 King Square North, PO Box 5001, Saint John, NB, E2L 4Y9.
Archival Ref. No.: Provincial Archives of New Brunswick RS 94 (microfilm copy).
