New title from the S.S. Daisy Committee
The S.S. Daisy Legal History Committee is pleased to announce the release of their latest volume: Three Chief Justices: Richard Routh, Jonathan Ogden & Thomas Tremlett, volume II, edited by Chris Curran.
These volumes transcribe the decisions of the Supreme Court of Newfoundland for the period 1798-1805 and contains the decisions of Richard Routh, Jonathan Ogden & Thomas Tremlett. Both volumes contain a comprehensive table of cases and a full index of names and places.
In addition, both volumes contain transcriptions of correspondence to and from the Colonial Office in London, with volume II containing the complete correspondence of complaints filed by the Society of St. John’s Merchants against Chief Justice Tremlett. These resulted in Justice Tremlett’s transfer from Newfoundland to Prince Edward Island and his replacement by Caesar Colclough, who had an equally troubled tenure on that island.
Three Chief Justices is available from the Law Society for $20, payable in cash, cheque, or e-transfer.
