Series notes:
This index contains a far higher proportion of entries to the number of files in the series than, for example, CSO3 or CSO7

and, though not so neatly arranged as some, it is probably a more thorough index than any so far considered. The alphabeting is by the first two letters, subject entries and cross-references are frequent, and the principle of the standing entry is more developed.

An analysis of some of the latter gives an idea of the range of subjects covered:

Auditor, Banks, Births &c., Registrar of: Bishop

Clerk of the Peace

Colonial Agent

The names of towns, other colonies, religious denominations and administrative functions are also used as general headings for multiple entries, and personal names and individual subjects are not neglected.
