SIR Lyttelton Holyoake Bayley

Knight, Bar-at-Law. 1869-1895

Sir Lyttelton Holyoake Bayley, Bar-at-Law. : Sir Lyttelton Holyoake Bayley had a long association with the High Court of Bombay before he retired in 1895. He was a barrister with a very large practice, and became Advocate General before he was elevated to the Bench. Bayley proved a strong, capable and experienced Judge; but was not very popular. He was apparently not in good books of Government either; for on the retirement of Sir Charles Sargent in 1895 he was passed over, Sir Charles Farran though his junior superseding him as Chief Justice. On this, he immediately resigned.
