Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 32, (1900), pp. 431-453.


E. Windeatt

Prepared by Michael Steer

An original parliamentary borough of Totnes or Totness had been created in 1295. It returned two MPs to the House of Commons until 1801 then was abolished under the Representation of the People Act 1867 with effect from the 1868 election. Windeatt's list of MPs is taken from the Parliamentary Returns, to which he has added information about the lives of most of those listed.
