Places with no voters

The following places :-
    Barmer, Bawsey, Bittering Magna, Bittering Parva, Bowthorpe, Buckenham Tofts, Burgh Parva in Holt Hundred (see Note 5) and Bylaugh had no one who lived there and voted because of a freehold in the same place.

Note that many people still voted based on a freehold held elsewhere. An example of this is Whinburgh with no freehold entries but with the following :-

  • John Coleman, a Clerk (Clergyman) is under Hardingham (in Mitford Hundred) because he lives there but claims a vote because of a freehold in Whinburgh (Whinborough).

The Poll book continues with Towns and Parishes beginning with the letter C.
