Genealogy Treasure No. 12: Receipt 1910 Dennison - McQuaig

This is the 12th set of documents in the batch I purchased at an antique store in Kingston Ontario July 27, 2012. For details, see Found! Treasure Trove of Land Documents from Ontario Canada

This document is a scrap of paper containing a hand-written note signed by Angus McQuaig.

It is dated 26 February 1910 and is a receipt for money ($120.00) received from Archibald Denison.

The scrap of paper states the payment is being applied to a note and includes interest of $20.00

More documents will follow as I scan them and extract their details. More documents will follow as I scan them and extract their details.

This is the reverse of the receipt above. I thought it was interesting to see that the receipt was written on the back of a cheque from the Crown Bank of Canada. This was then stamped above as The Northern Crown Bank of Canada. 

The Northern Crown Bank was the offspring of the 1908 merger of Winnipeg's Northern Bank and the  Ontario-based Crown Bank of Canada. The Royal Bank purchased the Northern Crown Bank in 1918.
