Name of creator
Christopher Murray Small, known as Christie, was born 3 Sep 1864 to Margret Gourley and Matthew Small in Renfrew County, Ontario. Christie was originally a farmer and later became a lumber foreman in Pembroke, Ontario. He married Annie Ryan in 1892 in Pembroke, and they had six children - Effie, Mabel, Harry, Irene, Muriel and Alfred.
In 1912, he purchased land in Edmonton, in the area formerly known as Crescent Heights. As this time was one of Edmonton's building booms, and Christy did not move to Edmonton, presumably this purchase was for land speculation.
Christopher Murray Small died 15 Feb 1927 in Pembroke, Ontario.
Murray Small is the son of Harry Small, and grandson of Christie Small.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of two agreements for the sale of land in Crescent Heights, Edmonton (Lots 3 & 4, Block 7 in Sec NW 24 - T 52 - R 24 - W4), between Elmer E. Pointer, a clerk in Pembroke, and Christie M. Small.
Immediate source of acquisition
This fonds was donated to the City of Edmonton Archives by Murray Small in 1976.
The material was arranged by the archivist by date.
