Simeon Lord and litigation

Simeon Lord reference in colonial cases.

Macquarie University Colonial Court Cases New South Wales

Lord, Simeon The most successful of the emancipist merchants. Owned a large house at Sydney Cove. Immensely litigious, his affairs took up a large percentage of the early appeals to the Privy Council. The records of the Council indicate that his opponents may have had good grounds for arguing that he used the Council as a means of warding off his creditors rather than in a genuine attempt to test the legality of judgments against him.
