Thomas Barnardiston (1706 – 1752), admitted to the Middle Temple in 1724, became a member of the bar in 1730 and was created sergeant-at-law in 1736.[1] He served as recorder of the borough of Dunwich, Suffolk from 1737 to 1750.[2] Barnardiston compiled two different sets of reports, one from the Court of Chancery, published in 1742, and this set from the Court of King's Bench, published in 1744. Both sets of reports received mixed reviews. Of the King's Bench reports, Lord Kenyon "held a low opinion ... regarding Barnardiston as 'a bad reporter' (R. v. Stone, 1801). Yet Lord Erskine once accepted a case cited from the king's bench reports as 'a precise authority' (Nelthorpe v. Law, 1807) ..."[3] Regardless of the criticisms, Holdsworth notes that the character of both sets of Barnardiston's reports has been largely vindicated.[4]

Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

Brown's Bibliography[5] includes the first edition (1744) of Barnardiston's Reports based on quotations in the manuscript copy of John Marshall's law notes. The Wolf Law Library purchased a copy of the same edition.

Description of the Wolf Law Library's copy

A single volume bound in modern calf with marbled boards; spine features six bands with stamped rules and gilt lettering to the label.

Images of the library's copy of this book are available on Flickr. View the record for this book in William & Mary's online catalog.
