The Kerr Family fonds consists of the daily record books, letter registers, letter books, and receipts of John William Kerr (1812-1888) and his son Frederick William Kerr (1852?-1902). John William Kerr (1812-1888) (formerly the Secretary of the Wentworth Society for the Protection of Game and Fish) was appointed Fisheries Overseer for Upper Canada under the Commissioner of Crown Lands on December 16, 1864, and began to write a diary and make copies of letters which he continued until his death on May 8, 1888. The record books, letter registers, and letter books consist of eighteen volumes, each containing between 292 and 1,004 pages. Part way through volume fifteen, John William Kerr died and his son, Frederick William succeeded him as Fisheries Overseer; Frederick William’s correspondence begins on May 7, 1888 in volume fifteen. The final three volumes consist entirely of the letters of Frederick William Kerr. Volumes dated December 24, 1864 to May 7, 1888 are attributed to John William Kerr. Volumes dated May 7, 1888 to February 28, 1898 are attributed to Frederick William Kerr. The letter books are comprised chiefly of correspondence with the Commissioner of Fisheries, the Deputy Minister of Fisheries, and the Deputy Minister of Marine and Fisheries, Ottawa. The record books contain zoological observations and unique information about fishing, people, contraventions of the Fisheries Act, and court trials in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Receipts, usually for licence fees, which the Kerr’s had carefully sewn onto the pages of the letter books, were at some point removed and are available only in their original format at the Archives of the Royal Ontario Museum.
