As a notice in the Athenaeum states, "The compiler of 'Boyle's Court Guide' was the late Mr. Patrick (not Peter) Boyle; the work in question was not written by the compiler of 'Boyle's Court Guide,' nor had the late Mr. Boyle any relative named Peter Boyle. This work, by whomever written, has been published without the knowledge or consent of the family of the late Mr. Patrick Boyle."
