A Resident Magistrate's office was established in Timaru by 1857, and by the 1860s a Supreme Court judge was visiting on circuit from Christchurch. A District Court was established in Timaru in 1870 and dealt with matters intemediate between the Magistrate's Court and Supreme Court jurisdictions, until a Supreme Court registry was established in Timaru, circa 1908. The court office was also home to other government functions over the years.
