Series notes:
The Bill of Sale Registers record the interest of lenders, including banks, finance companies and individuals. Lists name and place of business or address of parties, amount and dates of instruments and dates of renewal and or satisfaction. Later volumes include renewals of earlier Bills of Sale - entered in new register but with original date.

A Bill of Sale is a chattel mortgage: it grants the a lender the power to seize and sell the personal property listed in the Bill if the borrower defaults on the loan. The original Acts, in 1858 and 1867, provided for registration to avoid secret bills of sale being used to evade creditors. The procedures were refined in legislation of 1892 and 1896 then consolidated in the 1900 Act (which was amended in 1926, 1934 and 1958).
