by Sir John Comyns

Two legal works were published after Comyns's death. His Reports of Cases Adjudged in the Courts of King's Bench, Common Pleas, and Exchequer was translated from the original law French by his nephew and heir, John, and published in one volume in 1744. A second edition by Samuel Rose appeared in 1792. The Reports tracks Comyns's career, covering mainly king's bench cases to 1705, mainly common pleas cases to 1726, exchequer cases to 1736, common pleas to 1738, and exchequer again to 1739. Those from his judicial work in the exchequer are much fuller and more valuable than the earlier reports.[1]
