Artifact of the week. Oath of James Pringle as Register, 1825.

I James Pringle do promise and swear that I will deligantly and faithfully execute the office of Register (Registrar) and that I will not knowingly permit or suffer any alteration, obliteration or destruction to be made or done by myself or others on any Wills or Testamentary Papers committed to my charge.  So help me God.

Apart from being Judge Jacob F. Pringle’s father, James Pringle served the community in many ways.  He was clerk of the Peace from 1837 to 1858.

Loyalist lieutenant Joseph Anderson also served as Registrar of the Surrogate Court from 1800 to 1811.

This document was recently donated by Justice J.A. Pringle of Simcoe, Ontario.
