Gore District Debtors Gaol Records

This index provides the names of all the people confined to the Gore District Gaol (in Hamilton) on account of unpaid debts (defendants) and the people to whom they owed money (plaintiffs), for the period 1832 to 1849. The original register also includes the amount of the debt, the specific dates of committal and discharge, and the names of the judge and attorneys involved.

If you find your ancestor named in this index, you can have a look at the original records yourself (using the page number provided) at the Archives of Ontario, or you can contact me and I will make a copy of the relevant page for you, for a nominal fee of $25.
