If anyone person may be credited, not only with having conceived the notion of a single court of appeal in South Africa, but also with having brought it into existence, it is the Honourable John Henry de Villiers (afterwards Lord de Villiers, Baron of Wynberg), privy councillor, the last chief justice of the Cape supreme court and the first of the supreme court of South Africa.
