Related to another Privy Council appeal:

Walter v Nicholas – Report No. BAR_1714_05 (APC, v.2 [1206] p.681).

The records in both the register and PC 1 clearly give the appellants’ surname as Walter. The APC mistranscribes it as Walker.

Participants not mentioned in the APC were added here for clarity. Information about these participants was obtained from related primary and other sources.
