Judgments made by community courts were subject to appeal before the Council of the Colony of New York. Writs of appeal were granted by the council in response to petitions, usually submitted by one party in a civil action. The writ ordered the court messenger to summon the petitioner and representatives of the lower court to appear before the council on an appointed date to review the case.
