Administrative/Biographical history:

The Privy Council is, historically, the British sovereign's private council. It lost most of its judicial and political functions in the middle of the 17th century, when the sovereign ceased to have responsibility for political decisions. It retained, however, the power to hear appeals to the sovereign, which were dealt with by a General Committee of the Privy Council.


Scope and content/abstract:

Manuscript petition, [1711], from Edward Gatchell, a merchant of Tiverton, Devon, to the Privy Council, setting forth his wrongs suffered at the hands of Ludovicus de Wulfe, of the City of Ghent.
