Custodial History

A. The archives of the fiscal
Of the office of the Fiscal in its original form no archives have remained preserved and of the office of the Independant Fiscal during the Dutch administration very few archives have survived. Except for an few volumes, the archives of the Fiscal dates after the second British occupation and gives a reasonably complete picture of the Fiscal's activities and an interesting insight into the general history of the Cape Colony during this period.
