Related to other Privy Council appeals:

Smith v Carlisle – Report No. ANT_1736_01 (APC, v.3 [378] p.502–504)

Smith v Jarvis – Report No. ANT_1738_02 (APC, v.3 [447] p.615–616).

Not indexed as an appeal. Petition is for a writ of error and an appeal if necessary. The background for this appeal is given in the two related cases, particularly in the printed cases and PC 1 documents that are listed in ANT_1736_01.

The margin note for this action in the APC is “Leeward Islands,” but the Privy Council register makes clear that the island is St. Christopher.
