Crown Grants, Alphabetical Registers   (8092)
c.1842 - 1919  range held: 1842 - 1919


The Alphabetical Registers function as indexes to the Crown Grant Books (Series 8090).  They are arranged by name of land owner/grantee, and include the following details:  name of grantee, register volume, folio number, locality, section, block number, acreage, map number.

Some of the Alphabetical Registers (registers ABWN 8092 W5274/525-546) are held in the Register Room of Archives New Zealand, Wellington.

Registers of Deeds Issued from the Colonial Secretary's Office [LINZ Series 106 and 107] have been included in this series because they also function as indexes to Crown Grants. They contain similar details to the Alphabetical Registers but do not give a reference to the specific Crown Grant book. It is therefore necessary to match the description of the register (Series 8092) to the description of the Crown Grants (Series 8090). E.g. if the register title refers to Town and Country, then you should search for Crown Grants Books for Town and Country.

This means that the reference to a grant number given in the Registry of Deeds Issued from the Office of the Colonial Secretary, Auckland Town and Country [Series 8092, W5280/13] can be found in the volume of Crown Grants entitled Town Lands, Town, & Province of Auckland - No.1 Town [Series 8090, W5274/405].
