  Appellor  \Ap`pel*lor"\  ([a^]p`p[e^]l*l[^o]r"),  n.  [OF.  apeleur 
  fr  L.  appellator,  fr  appellare.]  (Law) 
  a  The  person  who  institutes  an  appeal,  or  prosecutes 
  another  for  a  crime.  --Blackstone. 
  b  One  who  confesses  a  felony  committed  and  accuses  his 
  accomplices.  --Blount.  --Burrill. 
 
  Note:  This  word  is  rarely  or  never  used  for  the  plaintiff  in 
  appeal  from  a  lower  court,  who  is  called  the 
  {appellant}.  Appellee  is  opposed  both  to  {appellant} 
  and  appellor.
