A note about the index
These transfer records may include land originally purchased under the Closer Settlement Acts of 1901 and 1904, the Closer Settlement (Amendment) Acts of 1906 and 1907 and The Returned Soldiers Settlement Act 1916. The Transfer Files relate to the transfer of land ownership and show for each transfer: surname and first names of transferor and transferee, residence, settlement purchase number, farm number, Parish, and County and date of transfer.
The files in NRS 8054 are arranged by annual single number and range from 1907/11048 to 1951/748. They include Settlement Purchase numbers issued from at least 1905 to 1944.
The files in NRS 8055 appear to have been created from April 1922 to 1951 and are arranged numerically. They include File numbers 1/2-11759/25 with each file at the same first number relating to the same Settlement Purchase. (For example, Files 140/5-140/108 all relate to Settlement Purchase No. 1920/1 in the Land District of Boorowa). No other order by area or by persons is evident. These files appear to relate to Settlement Purchase numbers issued from at least 1907 to 1944.
Copies of these records can be arranged after viewing the files in the reading room.
