All three orders reversed with liberty for further proceedings in Barbados within two years. Later petition for extension of time to bring an action in ejectment dismissed as it “did not properly lye before Your Majesty in Council.”


Related to another Privy Council appeal:

Pratt v Broome – Report No. BAR_1755_00 (APC, v.4 [259] p.284).

The APC here mistakenly calls the deceased Brome ‘William’. His name was actually Samuel.
