Title Day book
Object Name Daybook
Dates of Creation 1902-1928
Creator Spence, John Harold
Description This book consists of a daily record of financial transactions, from 1902 to 1928, likely recorded by a descendant of Captain John Spence, possibly Captain John Harold ("Jack") Spence.

The transactions recorded in the book involve individuals including: Alexander Emerson Belcher, Southampton; George E. Smith, Southampton; John Hilditch; Robert Bartley, Peter Knechtel, St. Paul's Church; John H. Spence; H.A. Spence; Cappy Spence, Will Spence, Nellie Currie, John Craig and the Fawcett Farm, some of which appear to have involved the payment of mortgages and transactions with private bankers. The transactions include references to "father's account" in the mid-1902s.

The recorded transactions also include the payment of taxes and/or debentures to Eastnor, Lindsay and St. Edmunds townships and make mention of Cape Chin lost.

The transactions also include the probate and managing of the estate of James Hendry Spence in 1907, with mention on the final page that Harry died November 22, 1906, that probate was granted January 23, 1907, and "resealed in Sask. April 15, 1912." John H. Spence and William McGregor Lambert were executors of the will of Henry James Spence.
