Roger Comberbach served as recorder of Chester and a judge of North Wales. Like many other reports of his time, Comberbach's reports were almost universally disparaged. Wallace sums up the work as "[a] posthumous note-book, published by the author's son, and therefore, perhaps, as filial editorships generally go, more pardonable for its worthlessness."
Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library
Brown's Bibliography includes Comberbach's Reports based on quotations in the manuscript copy of John Marshall's law notes.
