Roger Comberbach served as recorder of Chester and a judge of North Wales.[1] Like many other reports of his time, Comberbach's reports were almost universally disparaged.[2] 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."[3]


Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Brown's Bibliography[4] includes Comberbach's Reports based on quotations in the manuscript copy of John Marshall's law notes.
