Thanks for the clarification! I did a search earlier in the week, and found a "refusal of application" note for my husband's gggg-grandfather, but neither the scan nor the transcription made it clear exactly what I was looking at. I now realize it was a record of a letter sent from the Home Office to the solicitor who had filed the failed application. Very helpful!
