If the Surrogate Court records for a specific county do not include the pre-1859 files, please consult the 1845 district map in our online resource “The Changing Shape of Ontario” (www.archives.gov.on.ca/en/maps/textdocs/districts1845big.aspx ). This will help you determine which counties made up each district and where the district courthouse was located. Check the Surrogate Court records for that county to find the estate file you are looking for.
