Nominate reports

Title page from The Reports of Sir Henry Yelverton, sourced from the George Wythe Collection via Wythepedia.

The earliest law reports of England are known as Year Books, constituting the earliest legal precedents of common law. These were often manuscripts written in either Latin or Law French, between approximately 1260 and 1535, when the last yearbook was printed.

After 1535 and prior to 1865, collections of law reports were published privately by individuals. They were often referred to by the name of the individual court reporter (who compiled and edited the cases), and were subsequently known as nominate reports (but also known as nominative reports, named reports, and private reports). Sir James Dyer is generally attributed as the first law reporter and the father of the modern system of reporting cases to serve as precedents. [1]

Nominate reports were primarily described as nominate in order to distinguish them from the earlier Year Books, which were anonymous, and also to aid with citation in court.

After law reporting was officially taken over by the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting (ICLR), many of these older cases were republished in The English Reports (ER), The Revised Reports (RR), or the All England Law Reports (All ER Rep).

Some of these reports are also available via The Commonwealth Legal Information Institute (Commonlii).

Trivia

  • Anderson's reporting of the Chudleigh case, [203] a dispute over the interpretation of the Statute of Uses, was noted to have been "much better" than Lord Coke's reporting of the same case. [204] Coke notes of Chudleigh as being, "commonly called the case of perpetuities".
  • There was some disagreement at the time of Barnardiston's Reports as to whether they were accurate or not. Several lords frequently denounced either of Barnardiston's reports, with Lord Mansfield forbidding the mere citation in his presence in court. Lord Manners, on the other hand, is one of a few judges at the time who felt differently and is noted as having said: 'Although Barnardiston is not considered a very correct reporter, yet some of his cases are very accurately reported'. [205]
  • Colin Blackburn (Baron Blackburn) was a Scottish judge who sat in the English courts. His career is celebrated with some distinguishment, as he is noted by his peers and contemporaries for having 'all the essential qualities of the judicial mind', which no doubt led to his appointment as Law Lord. He is, perhaps, remebered more as one of the greatest proponents of common law.
  • Sir George Croke's reports extended over sixty years (1580 to 1640) and were originally written in Norman French. Croke's reports were later translated into English by his son-in-law, Sir Harbottle Grimston, for publication. [206]
  • Thomas Hare was an eminent political scientist and advocate for electoral reform in Britian, with the former London headquarters of the Electoral Reform Society being renamed in his honour. [207] However, he also achieved fame for his law reporting and is widely remembered for his reports of two key cases: Henderson v Henderson [208] and Foss v Harbottle. [209]
  • Sir George Lee is noted as the earliest English civilian whose reports of decided cases appeard in print. His collection of cases and notes were still in manuscript when he died in 1758 and were only recognised for publication in 1853 by Joseph Phillimore, then Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford. [210]
  • Edmund Plowden is attributed to be the first eminent lawyer to publish a case book in his lifetime.
  • James Russell was a significant law reporter in his own right, having published his own series of 'Reports in Chancery', and a series with Sir George James Turner, and another with James William Mylne respectively. [211]
The plaque located at the Old Bailey commemorating the Bushel Case.
  • Sir John Vaughan's most enduring case was the Bushel case in 1670 (also spelt and noted as Bushell's Case) [212], which set the precedent that a jury could not be forced into changing a verdict, despite the judge's disagreement or disapproval.
  • Sir Humphrey Winch's reputation was significantly damaged by the Leicester witch trials of 1616, in which a thirteen year old boy claimed fifteen women had possessed him. Although Winch, along with another judge, found the boy to be a credible witness, the case gained notoriety when King James I (who happened to be visiting a month later) interviewed and declared the boy to be a fraud. Of the fifteen women initially accused, nine were condemned to death and hanged, one died in prison awaiting sentence, and five survived and were released.

  202. Henry Button published six articles in the Law Society Gazette of law firms which could trace their origins back centuries. One of these is Collyer Bristow of London. There is a possibility that John Collyer of these nominate reports is perhaps one of the founders of the firm, or an ancestor (see Collyer of Hackford Hall in Burke's Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Landed Gentry).
