The Coutume de Paris came to Canada with the French colonists and was the law of Quebec until the adoption of the Civil Code of Lower Canada (Code civil du Bas-Canada) in 1866. This manuscript is the earliest recorded translation of the Coutume into English. Bagg (1820-1873) was a notary, justice of the peace and large landowner in Montreal.
