List of Images of Documents in the Classification PC 1
As is well known, The National Archives at Kew have a simply amazing collection of British historical materials. Their staff is consistently helpful, and they have pioneered in making their collections available through digital photography. Their friendly co-operation in allowing us to make images of their holdings is gratefully acknowledged.
Clicking on any of the page links below will bring you to an image of the page listed embedded in an HTML frame. You may download and use a single copy of the image only for purposes of private study, research, or teaching. You can navigate between the pages either by using the arrows at the top and bottom of the image frame or by returning to this page, which will remain in a separate tab or window. The images are large, so that the handwriting can be read.
The images were not photographed in good light, and sometimes it is easier to read the handwriting in black and white rather than in color. The URL on every image ends in ‘c’ just before ‘.jpg’. If you change the ‘c’ to ‘b’, you will get a black-and-white image.
If the document is referenced in volume 6 of the APC, that fact is noted, and a link is provided that takes you directly to PDF’s of the relevant pages. Some, though not all, of the descriptions in APC are quite detailed.

|TNA Document||Petition of S. Lillie – Mar. 1715 – PC 1/58/1|
|Catalogued as||Catalogued by TNA with the report of the Attorney General as follows: Petition of Samuel Lillie, merchant of Boston, concerning alleged unjust procedure in the Massachusetts courts of judicature, with report of Attorney General|
|Notes on Document||A complicated document: Our images are paginated consecutively. Page 1 is Lillie’s second petition. It is unpaginated and undated, though it must postdate 1 August 1714, because it is addressed to George I. The verso is not photographed and not paginated. Our page 2 is unpaginated but the verso is paginated 2. It contains “The Case of Samuel Lillie Merchant in Boston in New England relating to the Ship Samuel tried & determined the Court of Admiralty in New England, Nathaniel Byfield Judge.” This runs to page 9 (paginated 8), where there begins in mid-page “The Case of Samuel Lilley [sic] and Creditors tried and determined in the Courts of Common Law in Boston N. England.” This runs to page 12 (paginated 11), where there begins in mid-page “Case of Samuel Lillie relating to several oppressions and Wrongs sustained by him which have not been tried in any Court of Judicature.” This runs to page 14 (paginated 13). Page 15 (unpaginated but the next page is paginated 2) contains a certified copy of an order in Council dated 30 July 1711 referring the petition of Samuel Lillie to the Attorney General or the Solicitor General. Pages 16 and 17 (paginated 2 and 3) contain a certified copy of the petition of Lillie so referred. In the middle of page 17 begins a certified copy of the Attorney General’s report, the same report contained in the previous document, dated 6 January 1714/15. This continues onto page 18 (unpaginated). The dorse tells us that the document contains the “Petition and Report thereon of Mr Attorney General relating to the admitting of Samuel Lillie to appeal from several Decrees and Judgments given against him in New England.”|
