Name of creator
Sturgeon County encompasses the towns of Gibbons, Legal, Morinville, Redwater, and Bon Accord which lie north of Edmonton. The County covers over 2000 square kilometres of land and has been subject to periodic annexation due to the City of Edmonton’s growth since the 1960s. Major annexations of land from Sturgeon County occurred in 1961 (Clareview to Dikinsfield); 1971 (Castledowns and the Lake District); and 1982 (North East Edmonton).
Scope and content
This fonds consists of material related to land titles and related correspondence in the parts of Sturgeon County that were eventually annexed by the City of Edmonton. The records detail changes pertaining to the land such as the sales, recovery of taxes, building permits, and changes of ownership.
Immediate source of acquisition
This fonds was transferred to the City of Edmonton Archives by Sturgeon County between 2006 and 2012.
The material was arranged according to the filing system of the creator.
