Notes about
Joseph Smith (p.273) cites PC 1/58 – B/B2(a) at TNA as the petition and appeal in Axtell v Clarke. However, a diligent search by the Enquiry staff at TNA could not locate such a reference number or the corresponding documents. It is possible that Smith in his notes confused Axtell v Clarke with Axtell v Bonfils (JAM_1725_00), the petition and appeal for the latter being at TNA at PC 1/58/2A.
