Brownlow Lord Brownlow v James Devie, Clerk: PC 2 Jul 1782

Under what circumstances a new trial of an issue, directed to try a vicar’s right to tithes, ought to be refused, especially where the greatest and most material part of the evidence is in writing, of which the court directing the issue was a proper judge, and where there is no reason to suppose that any further light can be thrown upon it by another reference to a jury.
